“Sometimes you find yourself in a place that you just can’t explain and quite often it can be a little bit worrying. This animated short tells of one such occasion as our hero tries to express his feelings in the only way he can…via the medium of song.”

“Chris Black possesses a power that could lead to the destruction of the current regime, and they will stop at nothing to destroy him. The chase is on as Chris runs for his life in this sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles.”

There has been a lot of buzz about this short lately. I think because it’s the kind of thing that is possible now in a world of digital creative when an ambitious group of people bands together with a menial budget to create something amazing. And that’s exactly what happened here and it’s impossible not to feel inspired by the effort.
