Low budget films are part of a counter-story to films like Avatar that loom with stacks of money for creation and promotion. I was thrilled when I was pointed toward a new short science fiction film that was created for $5,000 and looks fantastic. The Raven plays with classic sci fi themes in its brief duration and makes use of surprisingly advanced special effects. This is the sort of work that gives real hope that new media will soon become the most effective way to create entertainment and that science fiction is still an endlessly vital way to tell stories.
The chase is on as Chris runs for his life in this sci-fi thriller set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles.
