[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
the story of a group of Delta force soldiers who are ambushed by
androids as they attempt to rescue the US president.
The ultimate goal is to produce a kick-ass sci-fi action film in
the vein of The Terminator and Aliens. This is a big ambitious film.
It's action packed - the bar has been set high for an independent short
A pitch video and a teaser cut from existing footage have both been posted online and both are very, very impressive. Check them below.
