Terrible short film
19 August 2019 | by eugenia_loliSee all my reviews

The story is thin, the CGI is heavy. Any truly substantial dialog doesn't happen until the third act! Everything else is filled up with CGI, unnecessary scenes, and of course, exposition. And more exposition. Exposition is the murderer of story! Show, don't tell! Illogical things happen just so the story could progress towards the "sit-down-and-listen type of explanation" (which I consider it another form of exposition) in the third act.

The director obviously doesn't seem have watched any video online (or read any book) on how to create a balanced story. This film reeks of someone who came into some money and said "I have some big ideas that I want to put on film". But it takes more than scientific interest and self-importance to create a film. It's a craft, and this director/writer has not mastered it yet.

I paid for this film, but now that I've watched it, it's not any better than the films premiering on the DUST channel on youtube for free. It just has more CGI than the usual sci-fi short film.
