Watch: Dan Gaud's Riveting 'Tonight I Strike' Robot Sci-Fi Short Film
"Who are you?" Another intriguing new science fiction short film to watch today, if you've got the time for something a bit more contemplative than the usual flashy sci-fi fare. This short is called Tonight I Strike, and features a couple of robot helpers while set in the near future but the story is actually about a brother caring for his young sister. Created by up-and-coming filmmaker Dan Gaud, the short has some excellent cinematography and solid indie acting, although some of the visual effects look a bit rough (except the bots). However, there's an emotional story at its core that shines through and makes this a worthy summer short.
Tonight I Strike doesn't have a synopsis; available directly on Vimeo. Directed by Dan Gaud, written by Gaud & Ayz Waraich. The cinematography is by Kevin Rasmussen, and the music is by Casey 3PM Clark. The cast includes Bass Stewart, Delilah Kates and Michael Coughlan. Mentioned by Dan on Twitter about the making of: "The one minute space sequence took 4 months to make. Three months of rendering on my laptop and another month to comp it." Gaud is a Canadian VFX supervisor-turned-filmmaker based out of Montreal. For updates on Dan or his work, follow him on Twitter @dangaud or visit dimeworth.com.
