Watch This: Short Film 'HIT TV' - A Love Letter to 80's Action-Thrillers
"Listen buddy, I got money! It's in my suitcase!" This is awesome. Filmmaker Saman Kesh has delivered his latest short film called HIT TV, a self-described "love letter to 80's action-thrillers". It has everything you would expect for - lush neon colors, a rad synth score, lots of guns and blood, money laundering, beautiful women. Just stop reading and watch it already! No seriously, it's really really good - the cinematography in particular is exceptional. The short is both written and directed by Saman Kesh, who made the short film Controller previously, and features original music by Makeup & Vanity Set. As suggested in the descrption: "WATCH IT LOUD AND FULLSCREEN." I really can't wait to see Kesh make a full-length feature. Enjoy!

From Vimeo: "HIT TV is a love letter to 80's Action-Thrillers. The short takes place in a neon 80's city called Emerald bay. An illegal TV show has mysteriously appeared every night posting murderous bounties. The organization running the show, highjacks broadcast channels to air a seedy and haunting call-to-action where people are identified for murder and priced accordingly. Happy Hunting, Players…" HIT TV is both written & directed by Saman Kesh (visit his official website), of the short film Controller previously. This stars Cru Ennis and Serinda Swan.

As someone who belongs to the generation X, I dont see it at all as an 80s homage. It has a 90s vibe.

Reminded me of Hotline Miami, a game, which was inspired by Drive.

This guy is a beast, I don't understand how he's still not directing major pictures! This looks great but I still prefer Controller, that one is a masterpiece

Wait... so can we expect a full feature in 2017, or just more HIT TV shorts?? Either way, this was great!
