Sweet Short: ‘Plot Device’

The title card from Red Giant's short film Plot DeviceAs a filmmaker, you are always struggling to figure out how to do something, whether that be learning how to operate a camera or light a scene properly or use new editing software.  But the most important thing of all is also the most difficult thing to figure out: story.  Story is the glue that holds a movie together and makes everything matter.

Red Giant made Plot Device, a short film about a young filmmaker that finds a miraculous device that helps him with this most difficult task.  However, it is a little more than he bargained for.

Check it out and be amazed.

I was incredibly impressed by the level of skill in this short.  The effects look great.  And the style of each genre explored is perfectly executed.  It’s a very impressive display of skill.

And here’s a making of video in case you were curious:
