Short Film of the Day: The Sound Machine

Why Watch? Based on the short story by Roald Dahl, this tense short film shows an inventor named Klausner who creates a machine that picks up a shocking sound.

The imagery is beautiful, and the whole thing feels like Wes Anderson went on a dark sci-fi kick and grabbed a Canon HV20.

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

Does it get better any better than that? Only if we got you some headphones while you watched. Check out The Sound Machine for yourself:


Written and Directed By: Zahid Chohan
