Watch: James Cooper's 'Interview With a Time Traveler' Sci-Fi Short
"Why must everything that is broken be fixed?" This might just be a must watch, but I don't want to get too excited. While we often feature sci-fi short films that have extravagant CG visuals, this one is all about the dialogue. Titled simply Interview With a Time Traveler, from director James Cooper, it is exactly that — an interview with a time traveler, and it's very mysterious and compelling. With all the discussion and build up in this, it has to have a good pay off at the end, and it does have a good one. I like how much they achieve and how captivating this is for something so simple - an interview. Check out the short in full below.
From the description of the short on Vimeo: "A time traveler meets with a journalist in a hotel room under the guise of sharing their story for an article, but what the journalist doesn't know is that the time traveler has an ulterior motive for inviting him that will change his life forever." Interview With a Time Traveler was produced and directed by James Cooper, from a screenplay written by Peter Rowley, with Pasha Patriki as cinematographer. The cast includes Eric Johnson (The Knick) as the Time Traveler, and Elias Toufexis (Bitten) as Paul. For any more details on this short or to follow James Cooper, head to its Vimeo.
