    Space is fake. 2095, the world will know, you can not fly through the vacuum, there is nothing for the ship to push against. If the moon can not leave «earth gravity» neither can a tiny space ship.

    :)) what could I call it...a wanna be movie, no artists inside, effects 0, concept art 0, idea 0...why would try to do such thing when you dont have any skillss...:)) really dont get, it, lets make all of us movies...who knows, maybe the randomness of the Univers will send to us an Oscar and many many many papers...we have youtube so, anyone could be an "artists"! Why not, give the Univers a try!

    Great visuals, but you need a better storyline and actors, the plot fell to bits. Shame.

    Like the comments below it makes no sense and the end too. Please. Most of the effects are good but the story is important too. One more thing is the water. Why does it have to be liquid? They would have been better off transporting a big chunk of ice. How are they going to keep all that water liquid all the way to earth in a long trip in space? Water heaters? Why? Possible contamination also? With the technology of the space shuttle. Space X has the BFR now. Why work so hard for so long and forget things like this? And the end? He conquers his fears? It gave me aquaphobia.

      Eh? Obviously Sword of Shortcock...? Always a fucking smartarse hidden away behind the curtains. So, Sword of Shortcock, my job is to keep an eye out for talent and recommend to a very large film company, what and who they should be interested in. And I do my job well. I also recommend who and where they should place their funding when it comes time to divvy up a whopping chunk of cash designed to give writers, actors and producers a boost. In my role, I interact with hundreds of people I’ll never have anything to do with again. I hope your one of them!

    After reading all the so called critics expressing how the director and team did such a terrible job on the film and yet so many of you think you can do a better job and have done nothing...!! Can anyone just watch the short film for what it is?? Man, you think you have to interject how everything needs to be corrected/perfect and I bet all the people whom think these folks did such a bad job seem to know more then anyone else...!! OMG... I can tell from just reading how many of the people comments that nothing will satisfy them...!!
    Mr. Director and team, GREAT JOB...!! I am glad you are putting your energy to good use and you will succeed...!!

    Total glitch - they keep showing Jupiter in the background, even though Enceladus is a moon of Saturn. But the movie agrees with that too! They can't decide of they're in orbit around Saturn or Jupiter. How could they waste so many resources and not get basic easy stuff like the location of the moon, or decent dialogue, taken care of?

  • respect my privacy
    respect my privacy Month ago

    at 16:40 and 19:31 they show Jupiter's GRS instead of Saturn. That's a very critical error in the making of this film. Especially when Enceladus is a Moon of Saturn

  • Dan Africk

    The ridiculously frivolous and poorly executed camera tricks at the beginning, among other hallmarks of a student film, should have been a warning sign, but for some reason I gave it a chance anyway. That was a mistake. The CGI for some of space scenes isn't bad, but that's about it. It's a terrible film with no redeeming value other than perhaps it will make you feel better about your own intelligence by comparison, if you have even a mediocre highschool level understanding of science..
    The plot is one of the most ridiculous I've ever seen, nothing about it makes sense. Somehow we used up all the water on earth (or it was ruined by a passing gas cloud?), and the solution is a multi-year trip to Enceledus to bring back as much water as a fairly small space ship can haul, and that is enough for a billion people? Water is that scarce and precious yet people ignore snow and puddles of water on earth with no attempt to collect it? And the mission is to go all the way to Enceledus and go to the trouble of drilling for hundreds of meters or more specifically for *liquid* water, ignoring water ice on the surface that is much easier to get? Do the writers think that somehow there is something magical about liquid water that it is not going to freeze as soon as it reaches the surface? Have these writers never experienced winter?
    It hurts my brain to even attempt to understand the thought process behind this story..

    There is a film written and directed by Lars Von Trier called Melancholia (2011) that also pretty much requires the complete suspension of disbelief at the actual events, and that has a heavy psychological and emotional feeling, but it received critical acclaim and some of you might really love it. I recommend getting high before watching it, but it's not necessary.

  • scrubjay93
    scrubjay93 2 months ago

    It kept me engaged and I did think the production values were good for a tiny budget. I liked the geyser on Enceladus and the look of the spacecraft. I'm going to let any and all future scientific anomalies or inconsistencies go, because I can suspend disbelief for a sci-fi story. I didn't understand what the man was going through internally, but that's not entirely unusual for off-beat films, so I just went with it to see where it would go. I wasn't as satisfied with the story though--it gave hints of going somewhere interesting, but ultimately nothing happened. What if the guy goes into the ice tunnel at the end and....a tribble peeks out from behind a rock... But it lacked a story peak--the liquid water at the end wasn't enough for me. Still, not a bad film at all in my opinion.

    If they had done away with the excessively slow delivery and long pauses, this short-film would have been less than 8 minutes tops...
    And such powerful dialogues;
    Eugene, you might want to sit down... I think I will stand...
    Dinners ready... That makes 47... 47 what? 47 words since you came up with us...
    And moments later, the scene changes to 'Day 47'... :)

    Not to mention the old 'rocket'...

    Omg, where do I begin! This was a god awful sci-fi short movie, for many reasons. Lets start with this and basically the rest follows as more caca, haha! Ok... So we see a message: "2095. The day it came." And we see a pic getting swallowed up by some cloud? from an outerspace view. Ummm what came? And then 4 years later? And everything is ok now except theres no more water left yet London looked to be thriving with flying cars and tons of energy output? LOL! HUH?! So "IT" just left? And from space, Earth looked pretty healthy 4 years later with ample water... So yeah, from there forward, this movie just bled to death.

    Any one else wonder why they had to collect liquid water? Surely frozen would be more appropriate since it would freeze in space on the journey back to earth anyway...
    Also we can already de-salinate salt water... Has earth used up all the oceans too? Seems unlikely... Did they consult real scientific papers on this or is it another child's story creation....?

    The added camera shake in what should've been stable scenes, and the oft-used flare in almost every scene distracted from the movie. In addition, the lack of any effort to simulate G-pull on their faces during the ascent from Earth was a disappointment. The captain telling him to get up on fracturing ice contradicts the wisdom of distributing your weight and scuttling away on all four limbs. I realize that caves have a more stable environment than the open surface but on a moon frozen at -201° C (-330° F), this seems pretty unlikely.
    Too many mistakes.

    It was an extremely stupid idea. If the world seas are still full then you can use de-salination plants to remove clean water. You don't have to go to Saturn to find ANY other water. It had no point at the end, it left you wondering what is supposed to happen now. Very Little LOGIC.
