Sci-Fi Conspiracy Crime Thriller Short - MANIFOLD
I've got another excellent short film for you all to check out today. It's a very ambitious multi-layered crime drama that also includes some sci-fi elements. The short was written and directed by Anthony Scott Burns, and he created something that I really enjoyed.
In the story a small-town sheriff investigates a grisly murder scene linked to a brilliant young software engineer, but his investigation uncovers a much larger conspiracy.
The short leaves off on an open ending that left me wanting more. It kind of left me scratching my head, but I'm pretty sure that's what the director's intention was. The narrative definitely leaves most of the work to the viewer's imagination, which is great.
