    Great performances, direction, CG work, etc... Decent setup, though the ending was really predictable. Either way, solid short.

    Looks like they entered a time warp/parallel time line that coincided with the old consciousness/present with a future /parallel existence... but who knows , regardless, awesome content!!

    If you are writing science fiction, PLEASE understand science. The main plot device in this film made no sense.

    • GeoLitz

      +Harpreet Singh the film never addressed why there was a temporal deviance, also one organism doesn't stop functioning because there is a duplicate. The writer wanted these things to happen and was to lazy to create a story world where these things made sense... it's like if JK Rowling wanted Harry Potter to fly and then just made him fly with no explanation. If there are no rules anything can happen, so there is no story.
      It's just super lazy writing.

    Impressive visuals, terrible acting, and poor writing make it seem like time travelling is normal with hyperlight technology without any form of explanation. It might be a low budget short film, but there are definitely better ones. B- student film project.

    Ok... So... the team that came to help the distress signal was really just themselves from a time paradox involving the faster than light travel. So, two chicks and two guys are in the same place at the same time. One of the chicks dies.. Then... The chick has to make a hard choice about living with the guy who she has been harboring hate for for a really long time and knew they if she was to live with this guy for an extended period of time, she need to get the hate out by killing the guy. Then, after she kills him... They live live happily ever after in space.

    Cool story. I actually didn't see the end coming. I thought the guy going to get the tools was going to decide to kill the one in a coma so that A) she couldn't kill him and B) he could kind of solidify his own idea of reality or something. Didn't think she'd do the killing first.

    I had thought of time loop. The other Philip said 'we weren't like that'. Ever? So that's the con to my theory. But Emmeline said 'I am sorry for whatever she did'. So this Philip finds out and they break up.
    Of course this theory would have more of a chance if the time difference was more than two hours. Which it isn't.
    Loved the video and the fact that it makes my brain go all tingly.

    Wish that people in movies wouldn't walk so slowly towards whatever. No one walks that slow if danger is present. It's unbearable to move so slowly. Let's make this more realistic. if you're going to approach the danger, you would do it swiftly, not drawn out. It's strictly a bad tactic to impress suspense on the audience. Please stop using this in filmmaking. It's a staple for every one of these sifi or horror shorts.
