I stumbled upon this by accident today, I suppose because the spy software in Youtube saw that I had viewed a Predator fan-film recently (which was actually pretty decent). Thought I'd share this as I was very impressed with the production quality, script, and general ambience of this film. At a time when sci fi seems to be dying the death in Hollywood it's refreshing to see stuff like this.
Thanks to technology, this sort of thing might be the way of the future. Youtube gave me a whole stack of other independently created short films in the sidebar to view.
