Short Film of the Day: Dr. Otka

Why Watch? Because it’s a rare skill to see a feeling of familiarity for the future.

This short, directed by April Choi and Ross Peacock, is a showcase of saturated nostalgia in a world where an alien invasion has forced the hands of the human race. Oddly enough, it’s an alien invasion film with no aliens – only a choice. Two men possess something that might save the planet, but they have to decide whether to risk their lives for it or merely save themselves.

The acting is fairly straightforward, but it’s the camera work here that’s truly breathtaking.

What Will It Cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.
