SciFriday: Short Films

There's been a couple nifty, buzz-worthy science fiction shorts making their rounds on the Internet of late thanks to pending film deals. First up is Sundays, which has been picked up for the big-screen treatment by Warner Bros. in a bidding auction. Not too bad for first-time filmmaker Mischa Rozema. It's visually impressive and if the right writer can be found, should make for one heck of a cinematic journey. [embed]https://vimeo.com/44102825[/embed]

Neil Blomkamp and Simon Kinberg have picked up Leviathan, with the script by Fight Club screenwriter Jim Uhls, to be based on a proof of concept trailer created by Ruairi Robinson. The short film, a Vimeo Staff Pick, has a bit of an alien Moby Dick vibe to it, and could make for a terrific silver-screen spectacle.
