Watch: ‘Echowalkers’ is Dark Fun with a Familiar Face

By  · Published on June 20th, 2012

Why Watch? There are people that look like you out there in the world. As varied as we are, there are 7 billion of us, and more than a few are bound to have traits that line up eerily well. One example? When I was in college, I got a ton of emails one day congratulating me on being featured on College Humor and being praised for how much beer was involved. When I checked the site, I found a picture of me standing on a stack of 30 cases of beer.

Only it wasn’t me.

It was some random college dude who looked almost exactly like me. And loved beer. In Bryan Khorge and Marcus Niehaus’s short, Robert (Niehaus) faces a far more dangerous version of that phenomenon. While the camera work isn’t anything to write home about, it’s a sharp idea executed well with some sinister (and often fun) results. Think of it as science fiction with only half fiction.

What will it cost? Only 10 minutes.
