Cropped Sci-Fi Comedy Short Film

"Please sir, stay calm! Let me play my role while you play yours!" Take a look at this fun, short film about a crop circle tour guide getting into a spat with her tour guests. Cropped is directed by filmmaker Chris Thomas and is an amusing Homespun Yarns film about the "Crop Hops: Circles of Life" tour to go see real crop circles. It's a nicely made short on a very limited budget, focusing on the story and atmosphere more than anything. Yes, the VFX are a bit weak when they show up, but I like the music, and the overall feel of the short is impressive for something this small. Nice work. A good short to get you in a scary movie mood.

Description from Vimeo: Cropped is about a group of UFO enthusiasts who clash with their cynical crop circle tour guide. When night falls the group have to set their differences aside when the mystery of the crop circles is revealed. They explain that it's "a short comedy/sci-fi film we made for this year's Homespun Yarns showcase." For more visit the Homespun Yarns website. Starring Annie Walker, Donovan Christian Cary, Jethro Aukin, Charlie Beazley, Ingvild Delia, George Oliver, Clifford Hume & Allan Macleod. Cropped is directed by English filmmaker Chris Thomas, from a screenplay written by Allan Macleod. Thoughts?
