    I think this sci-fi short depicts the perfect example for newtons law. For every Action there is an equal and opposite reaction from the point of human emotions and technological isolation. Russ is a fine actor and definitely should be associated with author backed scripts. Directors with a vision and extreme passion can bring the best out of him that will surely put him on the top slot. Sarah looks very convincing in her role. David, we did like to see a sci fi from you.

    This was interesting because it depicted a female character on the outside who has all it's humanity, sensitivity, and wanting to preserve it's humanity, and on the other side a man who tries to be part of a technology that he cresated(or at least that is what it made feel) and how we can become prisoners of technology that we created...all the gadgets, ipods, etc...and we can then become socially isolated . A very symbolic message of let's watch out what we create, since it could shape our human condition and numb our spirituality and sensitivity to one another.
    It could a possible series and/or video game where the video game or tv/internet series makes us think(as in a chess game) about all the choices we have. Russ Russo is quite an excellent actor and I have seen him live. He's got the goods, and with the right directors he can become one of the top young actors today. Wish him success.

    Awesome! Absolutely loved it! It's such a deep story, and very relevant to our society. The story can be interpreted on so many levels! The direction was solid, the Director obviously knows how to move a camera, and put an audience in a mood. The story, yet intriguing, I still felt like I had seen it before. That being said, there was definitely something different this time, that leaves an after taste that is thought provoking and won't go away. The acting was well rounded and everyone brought their A game! Russ Russo especially gave a memorable performance. This film can definitely be expanded, and made into something Dark!

    Awesome work everyone!

    Damn!!!!!... I'm an Amateur Gamer myself, and I'd love to see more. It's similar to affinty a Wrestler or Boxer has when watching a Movie about their own sport or hobbie. About time something like this emerged, it's very timely...Better than watching a Conan remake! LOL!!
    Very very cool guys, I'm kinda amped to see what could happen if this goes gets made to a big movie or something..

    And BTW, all the negative comments...are u serious? Really? What are you all, Actors that didnt get the part? Yea thats what I thought, its obvious...Scabs. Grow up.

    Great flick, Russ Russo! I wanted to see more! I was captivated! Interesting concept and grabs at the viewer when the game resets!

    This is a tasty, relevent little piece. I loved the idea of it. Camera movement was great, actors perfect. I had to watch it again. So what happened before/after? Did he ever get out? Does she go in and play the machine herself, do they get converted to cyber-gamers. Great job, lets see the full-length version!

    Admittedly it's a minimal story in a big package but that's what Tron was, right? I think the story has big potential. Think about a 'gamer-camp' gone bad type thing (or like a digital dictatorship movie). I mean we all know it's out there :).
    Cheers to G4 for featuring that stuff!!

    Glad to see that shorts are finally catching up to the real world and are no longer ONLY about two people staring at each other :P

    ps. I know the dude in the movie, he's famous... who is he??

    This is a tasty, smart relevent little film that leaves you wanting for more. Anyone with a half a brain realizes there is much more here than meets the eye; why was she waiting outside, did he ever get out? What was the shock he suffered? I watched it again just to make sure that I hadn't missed anything. Thanks for posting g4.

    That girl had the right idea. There ain't nothing in there for me either. Fail.

    A thinking-fan's sci-fi film...Sets a great mood...Very good score...Makes you want to know what went on before, what goes on after...I'd like to see a prequel and a sequel!

    It seems to me like there is some serious trolling going on here and these comments are starting to remind me of that scene in "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" where Ben Affleck is explaining to the guys what the internet & 'Movie ___ Shoot is about"!
    Incase you don't know what the scene I'm talking about the video clip is here and in my profile link.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch ?v=j_xqLaj0tvM
    This is not great concept and cool production. The chick is a bit wooden but the rest of it is fine. I don't see anything here that validates all these nasty comments which leads me to think this is nothing more then trolls with nothing better to do with their time then talk smack about this trailer.
    Watch the clip I posted. It only adds to my point!

    The male actor is one of the '5 actors to Watch' according to the IMDB...you know that little database that has over 4 million actors listed on it... they claim based on his work and aside from this project, he's set to do some Grand work in the coming years..http://www.imdb.com/lis t/2RgWKxQygZY/
