Watch: First Intriguing Trailer for Immigration Sci-Fi Short Film 'Noon'
"You'll be alright if I say you'll be alright." Here's another intriguing sci-fi short to take a look at. This one is called Noon and it's some hard, futuristic social sci-fi from director Kasra Farahani, an Art Director making his debut after working on Thor, Men in Black III and Star Trek Into Darkness. Welcome to Noon - Home of the Sun. In a bitter and polarized world, a coyote struggles to salvage what humanity still exists within him when profit is pitted against morality. I like the minimal effects in this and acting is a bit better, it has strong potential and I'm looking forward to seeing the full short. It was shot in 2 days by "Mad Men" DP Chris Manley. And I know, the guards look straight out of Half-Life 2, but it still looks damn good.
Here's the first official trailer for Kasra Farahani's sci-fi short Noon, in high def from Vimeo:
Noon, only "Scene 3" (via Vimeo), the upcoming short by Kasra Farahani, is in actuality the third scene in a completed feature script. Set on a future Earth where the Sun no longer moves through the sky, 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. In a massive, militarized immigration checkpoint into the bitter world of NOON, profit is pitted against morality as Gray struggles two reconcile his greed with his grudging impulse to protect an innocent girl. The full short will debut online on January 14th early next year. For more information on Noon, visit their website or follow for updates on Facebook. So how did that look?

Not enough lens flares!!! These people are idiots, they should have consulted J.J. Abrams on this one!

Ugh, looks like a rip off of HALF LIFE 2. Why can't any of these up and comers do something original. All these shorts look like clones of other sci-fi films.
