Proximity Short Film

"We're in the same boat, man!" To follow up all the Sundance announcements, here is a very cool action-thriller short film titled Proximity, or spelled PROXiMITY in the short, directed by up-and-comer Ryan Connolly (@ryan_connolly). The concept is key here, and it's all about messing with your mind as they're messing with the characters' minds. There's a good twist at the end and more than anything it's just a well done, super low budget little short showcasing the talent of Connolly and his cast/crew. He says there are over 50 VFX shots in the short, but you can barely tell. View the 11-min film in full and get more info below.

Proximity is directed, shot and edited by Ryan Connolly, creator and host of Film Riot & Film State and now filmmaker. The script was written by Ryan Connolly and Seth Worley. The cast includes Todd Bruno, Josh Connolly and Justin Robinson; with music by Daniel James, and sound design by Rob Krekel. For the full credits and more info, head to YouTube. Ryan adds that you can get a high quality version of the film with over 1 hour of special features, including the "On-Set Experience, VFX evolution and an in depth Director Commentary" in a package here. I like that poster. Great work all around, maybe it'll be made into a feature.
