With the help of many friends, Telescope was completed in 2013 in Los Angeles.
Trapped in a dying space station airlock, Alan must choose survival to see his family again or sacrifice to save his crew.
What others are saying:
"[Vacuity is] worth the very meager amount of time it asks of you...It's pretty killer that a sparse 13-minute film with an '$80' set can tell 10 times the story of the Transformers movies."
"Without a Hollywood budget to go on, the film is enough to keep the interest levels high and Matzur clearly has the film making minerals to deliver such a simple and effective story."
"A simple dilemma...given a breathtaking sci-fi makeover--impressive considering the whole short takes place in one small airlock. A-"
"A great snapshot of what it means to be human."
In this new Red Giant short film, from the creators of Plot Device, a scientist must prevent a new, powerful technology from falling into the wrong hands.
