This proof of concept sequence is one of the best I’ve ever seen. The visuals are astounding, but more than just a canvas, the timing and tone are sharp, creating a thrilling hunt in only a few seconds. It’s big, bold and involves an angry space whale, so I’m on board. It will also undoubtedly require many millions of dollars to convert into a feature-length film, so a studio needs to be on board, too.
The bonus here is that Ruairi Robinson made it. This is the same mind that brought us Blinky™, a short film that should be shared with as many sci-fi enthusiasts as possible. He’s demonstrated not only an eye for visuals ‐ which seem a dime a dozen both online and at the multiplex ‐ but also for character and story.
Studios, since you’re listening, give this man all the money he needs to make this movie a reality. Don’t think. Just act. [h/t Twitch]
