Music Video: Broken Crown

A Game of Thrones fan video featuring the song "Broken Crown" by Mumford & Sons.

Music Video: Rule The World

Jess9191 created this Game of Thrones fan video for the Lorde song "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" (From The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.)  It's a well-cut video, and the music could be more fitting.  I'm sure there'll be a DCMA complaint against the video inside a week, so enjoy it while you can.
"There are a ton of GoT videos to this song already and there will probably be 10 more while this uploads, but I still wanted to make my own."

Short Film: Unbinilium

Terrifying but beautiful, Unbinilium was shot in and around Munich over the span of two years by animators Christian Scheck and Jonathan Albert.  After an asteroid hits the planet, an alien chemical element  transforms the Earth's biosphere into a strange, toxic place.  Humanity is apparently helpless, and there seems to be no way back.
"An asteroid, smashed into fragments and hot dust by gravitational forces, has contaminated planet Earth and its atmosphere. Fate whispers of a terrible future, a future mankind won't survive to experience. Mankind has arrived at a crossroads."

Short Film: Auroras

"Auroras" is a sci-fi short set in the 22nd century, where a female cyborg is called away on a mission.  Far from the action film audiences might expect, though, "Auroras" focuses instead on the emotional dynamics of the cyborg's farewell to her lover.  The film features magnificent cinematography awash in an extraordinary array of colors.
"The filmmaker decided to set the story about two women after he saw the iconic picture of Naval Officers Marissa Gaeta and Citlalic Snell kissing after Gatea had returned from extended military service. This then gave the film so much more substance, meaning, and brought a whole deeper dynamic to the story then if it was about a male and a female because it was a more politically relevant story about the time it was being made in. Perfect for science fiction since most sci-fi is not about the future, it’s about the period in which it’s created."

Short Film: E.M.M.A.

"E.M.M.A." directed by Stephen Herman from TheBrokenBoxYouTubeChannel

"E.M.M.A." is a short film from debut director Stephen Herman, a junior at Baruch College.  "E.M.M.A." tells the story of two scientists attempting to endow a robots with human so that it can be used for human companionship.  The testing goes smoothly until an argument erupts between the scientists.  While the story may cover well-trod territory, the ending features a well-executed twist reminiscent of the old Twilight Zone series that makes it worth the fourteen minute investment.

The short was selected for two film festivals this year: the 10th Annual Big Apple Film Festival in New York City and the International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles.
