"Rachel?" Some nifty sci-fi to kick off 2016. Director Simon Brown has debuted a short film that plays as a teaser for a full feature called Traveler, about four friends who develop a teleportation system in a sleek jet-powered craft. This is much more exciting than you thank, and you will definitely wish there was more to it by the end, which is the whole point. It's a helluva pitch. I really love the setup, and the vehicle looks cool. Plus the sudden twist in this is awesome. Once you get through it, if you want to learn more about the story and where it's headed there's info on their website. Give this short a watch and let us know what you think.

Very intriguing, thanks for posting. PS I finally got round to watching The Signal, which I know you championed. I really enjoyed it.

Looks more like a fan film... are these professional actors? And sooo tired of the cliched baby-faced emoting "cool guy" conveniently also being a brilliant scientist who invented something millions of real scientists couldn't in hundreds of years... so unrealistic!

Unrealistic? All the best scientists are also male models....

I want my 4 minutes and 50 seconds back. Poor (no) story telling and very embarrassingly acted. I'm a huge sci-fi fan and find it almost unbelievable this was made when there are so many good stories to have been chosen to tell.
