This indie short film by Kaleb Lechowski not only has a sound storyline but looks awesome. The writing and voice acting are very well done and compliment each other. What really takes your breath away is the amazing views and graphics/animation. If I didn’t know any better, I would think this was a Hollywood block buster. The entire film is 3D and has some of the best texturing and shading that Ive seen in a long time.
The story is centered around an all too familiar story of a race of beings having their technology turn on them. The race is an alien race somewhere in space, its unclear what sector but presumably far away from Earth. The aliens are bipedal and have 4 arms, they remind me of races we have seen in the Mass Effect franchise.
It starts out with one of these aliens being interrogated by what sounds like a male version of GLaDOS but looks more like a sentinel from The Matrix. The tension in the air is very apparent and you really feel the cold hard emotionless computer and the extreme emotions of the alien. We then get a glimpse of their past, narrated by the alien, leading up until he is captured. He talks about how a good chunk of his race was able to flee and that they are planning a rendezvous somewhere in space. From that point the interrogation/torture continues. I’m not going to give away the rest, you will just have to watch to see what happens next!
