Sync: More like a trailer for something that doesn't exist
4 October 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Without credits this British made sci-fi short just stands at about seven minutes in length and as with all shorts that is a major hurdle to get past.

How do you tell a story in seven minutes? Well plenty manage it, but they certainly don't here.

It tells the story of world where cyber crime is rife and where a company uses robots to transfer data securely. But what happens when one such entity turns bad?

Personally I think the concept is dumb but even if I could get past that the whole thing is only that.............a concept.

There is no real story here, just the opening scene of something and that just doesn't work for me.

Sure for 5k it looks great but as a short, as an independent creation it fails miserably.

The Good:

Looks great for the budget

The Bad:

Serves no purpose

Goofy concept

Things I Learnt From This Short:

These things serve no purpose beyond pitching ideas to folks with money
