Project Shell (Video)

This is an independent short film that I came across several months ago. As most of you know I am a huge supporter of fan films and independent movies. I think what I love most is that these films are derived from the passion these directors have for just making something awesome and entertaining.  Project Shell is runs about four minutes but it is most definitely awesome and entertaining. The CGI effects are actually very well done and remind me of something out of a Neill Blomkamp movie. I mean that in a good way.

The sound effects are spot on which is another pitfall of a lot of short films, especially in this genre. The tendency to make “futuristic noises” way over the top can really be distracting or take away from the experience. I loved just about everything as far as the production quality goes for this film. However, the makeup effects at the end were just a little off putting for me. It kind of seemed like they either ran out of money for this or they used someone who wasn’t that great at doing makeup.

All in all though “Project Shell” is an awesome short film and definitely worth the watch. I hope that Blow Studio continues to make entertaining stuff like this and hopefully one day we will see them make a feature length film.
