Simply put: Amazing
15 August 2012 | by (San Luis, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I can't believe, how in god's name can someone get my attention so much in just 4 minutes.

This short video captures the essence of desperation of an impending attack 10 times better than most Hollywood films now days, in fact, this whole 4 minutes video is 10 times better than most super Hollywood productions of millions of dollars combined.

It is obvious the director used this as a white card to promote it's studio and sure it worked out incredible good for him and his people but, truth be told, it deserves every pat in the back for that, the short-movie shows just how much you can do with so little.

In the end, film-making is not about production, money or super talents, it's more about good ideas put into practice by young minds and when I say young minds I mean in the "spirit" sense.

Being myself a fan of SCI-FI you could tell I totally loved every minute of this short-movie, in fact I demand Federico to finish this work in the coming future, at least give us an explanation where this robots came to be.

I heard he is making a horror movie, now in post-production, can't way to see it, young talents are striving everywhere if you know where to look and this is great news, it teach us that it still possible to make fine material no matter what is your situation. Youtube is part responsible for this success because it granted the possibility to anyone to upload a video and be known for his/her work, this new era of digital -internet connectivity is allowing this kinds of things to flourish.

If you didn't see this film, do so already, it's everywhere !

Oh,I send Federico my best wishes being from my own continent I have great respect for Uruguay.

Panic Attack deserves a 10. Also, please check out the music video, it's really good too.
