Amazed and hungry for more
30 June 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I came upon this short by accident, and it was definitely a lucky one. Now, I must admit, I am a big SF-fan, so my judgement is a bit clouded. But: Wow! In just 7 minutes a whole interesting landscape of characters, time-lines and current state of society is depicted with stunning detail.

Aaron Sims and crew made this short as a low-budget cry-for-attention-of-Hollywood. Luckily, it worked. The amazing work they portrayed and showed in this has earned them the opportunity to make a full feature. I will be one of the first to watch it, and hope all who try this short as a teaser will feel exactly the same.

I couldn't give it a 10, because of the painful feeling of I-need-to-see-more it left me with.
