Sometime short films can be good overall even though you might find some parts of them a little less than … uh … professional; and this is especially common when it comes to sci-fi short films.
ATROPA on the other hand, for me at least, hits on all cylinders. From the style to the VFX to the acting, this short film is a really good effort from director Eli Sasich and writer Clay Tolbert.
It is one of those short films that leaves me wishing there was more to watch.
