Wow!
15 October 2015 | by mtasurferSee all my reviews

I caught this film at Holly Shorts this past year and could not believe what I was seeing on the screen. Usually at the indie level the visual effects are "visible," and can take you out of the movie. Not so here. Teddy Cecil and his gifted crew of special effects artists have created an immersive and convincing world that is on par if not better than some of the effects one might see in mainstream Hollywood films. The final scene is jaw-droppingly beautiful and leaves you wanting a sequel. Definitely check this out if it comes to your a film festival in your town and see this achievement. I'd recommend it for anyone who likes stories along the lines of Philip K. Dick or Terry Gilliam.
