Short Film: Grounded

Kevin Margo, a VFX/CG Supervisor at Blur Studios, recently made his directorial debut with this beautiful science fiction film entitled "Grounded."  His special effects experience (including a sequence in the original Spider-Man film) is readily apparent in this story about an astronaut whose spaceship crashes, forcing him to face life on this unfamiliar planet.

We here at The Geek Art Gallery often complain that these short VFX pieces are nothing more than superficial, even vacuous, calling cards for aspiring filmmakers, but "Grounded" is a short film with a dream-like quality that feels like a dream, laden with deeper meanings just waiting to be interpreted. 
"One astronaut's journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop."
