Short Film: The March

Josh Fortune created the beautiful, brooding animated film "The March" for the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge, which challenges film-makers to produce a short film in just 48 hours.  The film tells the story a slave forced to march across the desert of the Planet Tarsus.

Few movies get away with voiceover as a primary vehicle, but in this case, X27′s weary disembodied voice aching to make a connection is thematically pitch perfect perfect.  The animation is a quaint cut-paper job that evokes comparisons to Tatooine.  It’s ambitious for a two-day production, but it won, so I guess that was the point.
