I've got an incredibly awesome sci-fi short film called "Plug" that you've got to take the time to watch. The movie was directed by David Levy, and it follows a spunky girl named Leila who embarks on an adventure to find other life forms in the world that she lives in. Her survival is put in jeopardy when she does.
Levy is a designer and concept artist who has worked on films such as Tron: Legacy, Prometheus, Ender's Game, Tomorrowland, and Avatar 2. You can definitely see he brought his A-game talents to this short film, and as you'll see it turned out spectacular.
Levy sent us the short and explained that it's "a return to 1970's classics like Star Wars and Mad Max with a gritty universe, an Asimov vibe in the storyline and made from mostly live props and real life settings." Here's the synopsis that was released with the film:
On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with a Military Unit, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover the reality she’s been denied—a reality that sparks her ultimate quest.
This truly is an amazing piece of work, and one of my favorite short films of the year. Enjoy the show! I also included a behind-the-scenes video as well.
