[Once again, this time with working video embeds.] Director Samuel Jorgensen has won a lot of fans around these parts over the years with his short films, works that typically blend solid character work with a polish and high quality VFX that are well beyond what should be possible with the budgets in hand. And now Jorgensen is at it again, raising funds on Kickstarter for Singularity, a film that looks to be his most impressive yet.
Singularity is a sci-fi action short film set in the near future
about a civil war between humans and sentient androids. The film tells

A pitch video and a teaser cut from existing footage have both been posted online and both are very, very impressive. Check them below.

Like most fans of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I found the relationship between John Boyega's Finn and Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron to be one of the film's most charming aspects. As soon as they'd uttered their enthusiastically mutual "nice to meet you's!" in the stolen TIE Fighter, I would...
