"Alone" - *Award Winning* Post-Apocalyptic Short Film

  • Published on Sep 15, 2013
  • Winner of the Halifax Film Festival awards for Best Cinematography and Best Sound Design.
    Alone. Alone is what this man is. Years after the world ended and the human race perished; this is the only man left standing. How did he survive? What caused the outbreak? We don't know. No one does. This short film gives you an inside look on what the only man left alive does on a day-to-day basis, what he does to survive, kill time, and keep himself sane.
    Directed/Edited/Sound Design/Graded by Brock Torunski

    I was once keeping an eye on my neighbor's house while he was out of the country when one night the light in his bedroom came on. I called the cops they came and checked the perimeter then I opened the house and we checked the house, that's when I saw ....

    ....the gecko that must have flicked the light switch.

      Thanks, I'll take a listen. I don't speak spanish, but would still like to hear the song! I actually had a friend act in this and I did the rest (directing, camera work, editing, audio, etc.).

    I wouldn't recommend burning _that_ money... Too bad Canada switched us to polymer crap notes. The ending was something, though. There also could have been more inflection in the man's voice, but oh well. He still has Tobuscus's looks, at least!
    Anyway... [cuts off rest of comment before anything else interesting could happen! (;P)]
