      @renaud techer Yeah I am so sick of that too, I keep trying to PAY for content here in NZ but can't, usually because our utterly rubbish 'Sky TV' is a monopoly. I have Netflix and Prime - the latter picking up The Expanse for another season after it was cancelled due to "Distribution challenges" which I think means Sky or an equivalent monopoly ruined it for us - but I can't see more than a fraction of the shows Netflix and Prime air in the US, and I can't buy most movies off Amazon because "you need a US address", I am so f**king over companies attacking the "pirates" they CREATE. Downloaded GOT to try it, bought S1-2, when I liked it, then the S1-4 box set and downloaded the rest, but will BUY the full set when it comes out and put it on a shelf. Why? Because being made to subscribe to Sky for an entire year to watch ONE season of ONE show is MY definition of piracy! Sorry man, kinda lost my shit for a second lol. It's just so annoying eh. I'm called a pirate but I even bought frames from 'The Tunnel' - WE WANT TO PAY FOR CONTENT DAMMIT.

    Too predictable and wholely unscientific. This is 3rd grade level dumb seriously, like what, is there some arbitrary rules in this clip where twins can't exist and bodies all have instant communication to block more than one DNA of a human to be active? It's clearly not the memories. But I am going out on a limb when I say that this sounds like religious soul garbage.

    For this being low budget it isn't bad at all. Seems like a main stream sci-fi short film. Kinda like Disney and Pixar's short films. Those are awesome.

    I’m happy to have found DUST. I hope that by simply watching and giving a thumbs up somehow supports these independent filmmakers. I realize making even short films is very time consuming and expensive. I really appreciate the talent and effort put into these productions and feel fortunate to be able to see them at all. It’s like having an Indie film festival in my bedroom. Thank you.

    The audio on this is way too low. With full volume AND headphones on, I had to strain to understand what was being said. No thumbs down from me, but no thumbs up either. Sorry, you need to work on your audio.

    "He's going to find out." I don't think it would matter. Given the same circumstances, where she was lying on the table and an alternate her speaking to him, he would kill her, the person from the other reality to get his Emiliana back. I wouldn't even make her do it. I would space myself. My Emiliana is dead. I can't love this one. What's left for me?

    This is an extremely well done mini-movie, I love the way they used ordinary objects but manipulated the way they saw them. I.E. 5:22 They used a caprisun or something like that, but turned it around to just see the metallic side.
