This is a fantastic little short film. I found it after I was watching another short film to talk about. But this film really grab me for it’s action and story. Take a few minutes and watch it. No matter who or where we are we all love Sci-Fi

A military-led search for these unwitting suicide bombers begins, sending a terrified machine woman and her human partner on the run. Directed by the talented Dassani brothers, Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani!

A Sci-Fi Short Film HD: “PLUG”

On the latest The Pop Culture Cafe Scott and I talk about this short film.  If you are a fan of the “Ghost In The Shell” or “Appleseed” you may notice that some of the design of the robots have the look for these series.

On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with Swat Team robot, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover a human disguised as Robot, Ray (Jake Lyall), and the reality she’s been denied-a reality that sparks her ultimate quest. PLUG is a short film from acclaimed science-fiction film art director, David Levy (Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Enders Game, Tomorrow Land). It is the first installment of Levy’s yet to be produced epic series/feature, which follows Leila on her quest to reunite with humanity and the impossible choices she must make about her allegiances – Human or Robot.
