[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
