Sci-Fi Short Films - AFTER THE DISCO with Anton Ylechin and Kate Mara


Anton Yelchin and Kate Mara star in a series of great-looking sci-fi shorts called "After the Disco." The films serve as a music video for the band Broken Bells, which consists of Danger Mouse and The Shins' James Mercer.

The films follow a trippy romance that unfolds between Mara and Yelchin. They are swept away into a futuristic landscape, spaceship, and disco. They were directed by Jacob Gentry, who says in an interview with The Verge that the short is based on a story written by Danger Mouse and inspired by sci-fi imagery that Mercer sent him.

"James Mercer was sending me images of Barbarella and Logan’s Run, that sort of late ‘60s/early ‘70s science fiction. The same way we mixed all those visual styles is the same way Broken Bells mixed all the musical styles from every era to make something unique. It has an otherworldly feel."

We have two of several shorts that are being released in installments. There's no word on how many there will be, but the second short leaves us with cliffhanger, so it looks like there are more to come.
