Factory Farmed

Tonight you can catch some early screenings of Godzilla at pretty much every theater playing the monstrous remake from director Gareth Edwards this weekend. But before you check out his first blockbuster, secured after people saw his impressive sci-fi indie Monsters, go back two years before his indie debut to check out this short film created for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge. The film is titled Factory Farmed, and in addition to being developed, shot and edited in 48 hours, it had to include a clear bottle with red or green liquid and the line of dialogue, “I am required to carry out this task until completion: your orders do not override anything.” How did Edwards do it? See for yourself below!

Here's Gareth Edwards' short film Factory Farmed via The Film Stage:

Godzilla, being directed by Gareth Edwards (of Monsters), comes from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce, Max Borenstein and Frank Darabont. The cast is lead by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche. An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are sending Godzilla stomping into theaters May 16th this summer. Viral site: MUTOresearch.net.

    1st time I have seen it and really impressed, especially the work he did with doubling the actor in that space of time. Here was our entry from this year: http://vimeo.com/m/92019292
