Project Arbiter

Why Watch? When you’re surrounded by a dozen Nazis with a couple of tanks, it helps if you’re wearing a suit that makes you invisible.

In this Iron Man-evoking short from Michael Chance, a small crew takes on a suicide task of infiltrating a WWII villa where the Germans are doing some world-changing experiments. It’s a tight men-on-a-mission story with some excellent action (and acting that isn’t too distracting), but it shines for its pro-level cinematography and special effects that bring a steampunk hero drenched in sepia wash into a realistic world. The grisly, flesh-eating make-up effects don’t hurt either.

It’s a fun alternative history vaunted by stirring visuals, keen designs and an appropriately rousing score.

What Will It Cost? About 17 minutes.
