Check Out the Sci-Fi Short Film “Somnolence”

by Dan Koelsch

Especially with social media today, short films are a great way for filmmakers to promote themselves and ideas to the world. Patrick Kalyn, an Emmy-nominated visual effects animator who has worked on films such as District 9, has done just that with his short film Somnolence, a cool sci-fi thriller he hopes to turn into a feature film. As /Film notes, it was filmed for $10,000 in 2 days in Vancouver, BC using Red Cameras. Watch the entire short after the break.



Below is the official synopsis of the short film and, of course, the video itself.

By 2031, the Earth has exhausted its supply of fossil fuels. With the world on the verge of collapse, nations from around the globe form a coalition called AREN; the ‘Manhattan Project’ of clean self-replenishing energy. When an experiment goes wrong that threatens the world’s existence, David Canterra and a team of elite soldiers are sent on a mission to stop the anomaly. What they find is a mind-bending alternate dimension, and their only way home is through the fabric of time.
