Short Films : Short Films

Re: Short Films

lol Yes, I'm familiar. The cat is in the box, and the box is closed. It is simultaneously dead and alive because there's no observation. The act of observation destroys the integrity of study. If you watch it, the protagonist is watching a series on TV talking about Schrodinger's Cat. Also, when he's playing Hangman with the 2nd (duplicate) girl, the name he's trying to get her to guess is Schrodenger's. (Look at the letters on the blanks).

The physical aspects of a parallel universe are brought up in this as collapsing multiverses which are starting to drop, and generally in physics it's believed no two objects can occupy the same space. What that particular episode did was demonstrate an anomaly where by universes were collapsing together, creating the coexistence of what is technically the same object, which is diametrically opposed to theory.

The aspect of Schrodinger's Cat is brought up repeatedly.

Re: Short Films

Thanks and Damn! Now my brain hurts. I gotta watch that again and look for our favorite feline. Maybe I was concentrating too much on the plot the first time around. One can notice a lot of things when one is not concentrating on the plot.

Damn, girl! I will binge on this shit! I love sci-fi, and this and Black Mirror are awesome!

Re: Short Films

Yes! I know exactly what episode to which you refer! That was one of the ones (of many) that particularly stood out.

Wow, I hadn't thought about that one in a long time. I've noticed a few of these DUST episodes are very reminiscent of The Twilight Zone.

Re: Short Films

This is so sad. It's about a neglected child.

Re: Short Films

First, the boy, feeling neglected, bioprinted a duplicate of himself so he could have a twin brother, but at that time or in that world, only one child was allowed. The parents were faced with a choice to eliminate one child.

Instead, what they did was bioprint themselves, to create another entire set of parents. Each bioprint is an identical of the original person, same memories and feelings, etc. So now there are two identical families living on opposite parts of the world. That postcard you see at the end is from the "duplicate father" who took the duplicate son.

Re: Short Films

Automata – This has been turned into a series. Doug Jones! This has a very Blade Runner type of vibe going crossed with Eliot Ness or something.

Re: Short Films

Wow! That was creepy! Once again, very Black Mirror, but I'm not exactly sure what was going on. So were they connecting their baby to a computer to be educated? And wtf happened at the end? It looked like the real Mom was in the computer. I'm a bit confused.



Man, this Dust Channel is cool. I can see myself watching lots of films there. Thanks!

Re: Short Films

I'm definitely going to have to check out Black Mirror with so many people suggesting it!

As far as the first video, the little baby was being programmed, (think of the Matrix), and what it was perceiving was what you saw on the screen, ie: being held and cared for by "images" of the real parents, so he grows up with memories (including whatever skills they buy with their credits, such as how they mentioned that he'd learn Mandarin by being connected).

Re: Short Films

Yeah, that's sorta what I thought. And yes, do yourself a favor, and check out Black Mirror.

Re: Short Films

Yes, yes!

I also wanted to shout out to @NZer and @~AnnaMaria~ and @MissMargoChanning . Even though this has androids in it, it's got a very Phryne Fisher feel to it. And as I said, very Eliot Ness. Also very much like a Nero Wolfe Mystery.

Re: Short Films

Okay then. Gotta get back to Dust now!

This perfectly demonstrates what it's like to live with paralyzing anxiety.

Re: Short Films

Okay. I'll get to this one after I watch all the others. Thanks.

Re: Short Films

This one is cute and funny, and definitely worth several chuckles. Gotta watch it all the way through to the very, very end!

Re: Short Films

Okay. I'm going to watch all of them! Thanks again!

Re: Short Films

This has a surprise ending as well. You'll never see this one coming.

Re: Short Films

Probably not, but that's one of things that makes these films so great!

If you've watched GoT you might recognize someone in this.

Re: Short Films

The guy they got to play the pilot was brilliant. This was so believable.

But yes, it definitely was sad.

Re: Short Films

I'm working my way through them. I'm not particularly a fan of animated stuff, so I have skipped a lot of those. Every now and again, however, something will catch my eye.

Okay, okay, so check this one out, and parlay it into today's socioeconomics system.

See what I'm talking about?

Re: Short Films

I really hope you get around to seeing at least a few of these.

They generally have a very high production value, and are extremely well-done.

Re: Short Films

Thanks. I think I've seen four or five so far.

Re: Short Films

I'm "replying to you" as a means to post a new video, but I'm certainly not trying to single you out or appear to push a video on you. Just randomly adding to the list if I come across something that looks interesting.
