This short from Matt Spicer just goes to show how it's possible to find the humor in a little death and murder.

I'm not a huge fan of found footage films but this one really caught my eye. Surveillance manages to tell a pretty compelling story story in under 3 minutes, which is a lot tougher than it sounds. I come across so many scenes and shorts that take forever to set up and their payoffs are rarely worthwhile. This starts as late as possible in the story and gets right to the point...

This whole hard drive crashing thing has been quite the misadventure. I'm still kicking myself for not having monthly backups. My drafts are so far behind, it's unlikely I'll have anything ready for the upcoming contest deadlines. Luckily, I keep a decent amount of handwritten notes. It'll be a chore but not an impossible one. I also smartened up and got myself a dropbox account.
Anyway, this week's short comes from writer/directer Saman Kesh. It's a pretty ambitious 8 minutes of sci-fi, action, and romance. The video game elements remind me of Scott Pilgrim. According to deadline, Fox plans to turn it into a feature. That might prove to be an enormous challenge. Bigger isn't always better...
BTW, Kesh is also set to direct the Cube remake.

Not quite back to speed after my hard drive crashed, but almost there. I'm kicking off a superhero-themed week with this short from Marcus Alqueres. A little light on plot but it sure is pretty...
Hopefully, I'll get a chance to post some thoughts on recent superhero fare like Daredevil and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
