Here's the synopsis: Chris Black possesses a power that could lead to the destruction of the current regime, and they will stop at nothing to destroy him. The chase is on as Chris runs for his life in this sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles.
It seems like the shorts at the cutting edge these days are all science fiction films. As technology becomes more adaptable and accessible, filmmakers with a lot of drive and ingenuity are able to create such vast and beautiful worlds that leave the viewer going, "how did they do that. How much did that cost?" Answer: shot with a Red Camera and completed for $5,000. Wow. Neil Blomkamp's District 9 was born of a short film called Alive in Joburg and Carl Erik Rinsch's short The Gift is causing all kinds of waves and bidding wars in Hollywood (I'll be featuring that short next week). So yeah, its a good time to be a geek and a lover of short films.
So sit back with that coffee as you tap tap tap over your keyboard and let the world of The Raven take you over. Enjoy.
