I’m a big fan of independent sci-fi films and this looks like it could be right up my alley. Science fiction films often take on such a big scope that tackling one on the independent level is a bold, fearless move. It forces filmmakers to be more creative to pull off their vision. What they lack in budget they get to make up for with creativity and freedom. Filmmakers may not always succeed with this move but you can’t help but applaud them. If the festival noise is any indication, director James Morrison has succeeded.
