Singular Short Film

"Everyone could do extraordinary things… Everyone – except me." Now this is a good short film to watch. Titled Singular, this short film by brothers Juan F. Orozco and Esteban Orozco explores a world where instead of wondering what it would like if a few people had super powers, it asks what it would be like if everyone had super powers – except for one guy. I always love coming across shorts that play with unique concepts, and twist the normal idea of what we expect on its head. This short doesn't exactly play up special effects or any of the super powers so much as the romantic angle, which not everyone may like, but I don't mind. Plus: "who cares?!" I just like seeing an original idea made by passionate filmmakers. Give it a shot.

Synopsis for Singular straight from YouTube: In an America where everyone has superpowers, Andy, the only kid who doesn't have one, struggles to escape a group of bullies led by Sofia, who just wants to make Andy's life more miserable than it already is. But what begins as an ordinary 'everyday' beating ends up spiraling out of control, putting our hero in a life-or-death situation where courage, leadership and sacrifice will guide Andy -- and Sofia -- to discover the true meaning of "being special." Singular is directed by Colombian filmmaker Juan F. Orozco, written by Esteban Orozco, with cinematography by Luis Otero Prada and music by Jermaine Stegall. For more credits, check out the short on YouTube. Thoughts?

Seems like a less interesting take on "normalman".

This was shot really well. I hope they get something from it.
