    wow, those effects and visual ideas seem more contemporary than the year it was released. amazing short.

    • Chris Sobieniak

      No doubt it’s being rather pseudo the way it’s presented, but no doubt very much an original piece.

  • Mike Scott

    Hmm… if I didn’t know better I’d say that definitely David O’Reilly’s work.

    1957, that’s just plain hard to believe. Brilliant stuff.

    • Chris Sobieniak

      It still seems like a brilliant hoax to me.

  • Terry Craig

    I know, but I think that’s more of a story rather than an actual plot (mainly). And that’s a compliment.
