Watch: 'Dirty Machines: The End of History' Short About Time Travel
"Even something as arbitrary as a piece of litter could have the power to change the entire course of history." WHOA! This is one of the best shorts you'll ever see!! Dirty Machines: The End of History is a proof-of-concept short for a sci-fi series about time travel. Written & directed by David Matthew Olson, who also stars in it, the concept involves a tourist taking a trip back in time to the beginning of time travel, a moment where we follow a scientist about to discover the formula. This is Christoper Nolan-esque brilliant, especially in the use of the intense, lingering score used throughout the first half. Filmed in the Stockholm subway. I love love love everything about this, all the intellectual dialogue, and the fact that the woman who invents time travel has a cute dog with her (named in the credits as Bone Chomsky). It's all just so perfect.
Thanks to Short of the Week for the tip on this. Description from YouTube: "A time traveler takes a tour of 'The Birth of Time Travel.'" Dirty Machines: The End of History is directed by American "strategic creative" / filmmaker David Matthew Olson - raised in California, now based in Stockholm.

"The End of History serves as a teaser/pilot for the intellectual property 'Dirty Machines' to pitch the series in hopes of creating a new mega-franchise à la Game of Thrones / Star Wars but about time travel and arthouse and woke and won't go to shit for a cash grab in the end.” For more info on this, visit SOTW or the film's official website.
