Happy Friday! Today we have an intense sci-fi short called "Noon" written and directed by Kasra Farahani. Farahani is a concept artist/art director/production designer who's worked on films like The Case of Benjamin Button, Alice and Wonderland, and a bunch more well-known titles. Pretty cool, huh?
Vimeo summary: Noon is a scene from a completed feature screenplay. The short sets up the world’s unique premise and introduces our protagonist, Gray, a coyote numbed to the cruelty of the world and his part in it. We watch Gray struggle to salvage what humanity still exists within him when profit is pitted against morality.
Why I love it: I'm impressed with Noon's production design, which is phenomenal for a short film. Farahani manages to create a highly-detailed and compelling universe in only 12 minutes. Pretty unique sci-fi idea, too.
