A short film for the Digi60 Film festival competition. The "Catch" this year was about "Discovery" and a canoe had to make an appearance at some point in the film. Also, one character had to be named Sam and at least one character had to say the words... "Ah ha" in the movie. Some how we managed to get everything into the movie.
The concept of the re:Discovered short film was to look at how an alien race visiting our world long after we are gone might assume a simple toy could be seen as an idol or god. If seen enough times on their journey, one would only feel the importance of such image. For this, Darth Vader is our branded image. It could have as easily been, Micky Mouse, Elvis, or even Superman. The notion aliens don't read our language, they must create their own story based on images they find. It is a fun "what if scenario".
