Watch: Sleek, Futuristic 'Shogun Tango' Sci-Fi Racing Short Film
"Ten seconds 'till you go supersonic!" Another awesome bit of sci-fi to check out today, in the form of a new short film made by brothers Christopher Desantis and Greg Desantis. It's called Shogun Tango and is a futuristic sci-fi racing short (first found via io9), involving a number of sleek ships and spacecraft. Greg Desantis explains: "We made the movie in our spare time over about a year. A few people have asked if it is a viral for Virgin, it's not. We just thought the film would be cooler with real logos, than with fake or generic logos." It reminds me of the anime Redline, but if it were live-action-ish. Check it out - it's only 2 minutes!
Love this opening description (via Vimeo): "Every December 25th a land race is held in New Bonneville California. Only the fastest and most powerful vehicles can handle the grueling conditions. The official race title is, The Bonneville Classic 5000. But the world has come to know it as The Shogun Tango." The short was created and directed by Christopher Desantis (website), an up-and-coming filmmaker, with design and art direction by his brother Greg Desantis. The cast includes Bola Ariwoola, Ben Davies and Mice Rivello. This could be a cool feature. For info, visit the shoguntango.com website. Pretty damn cool?
