The Awareness





This short film is called The Awareness. It's by writer/director Henry Dunham, his first project, and one that plays deep within the shade of some classic sci-fi tropes.

Here's the synopsis: On the eve of a technological breakthrough, an insignificant janitor and a prominent engineer are faced with a decision that will alter the course of humanity: the release of the first aware computer system into the world.

That sounds like good stuff; let's check it out...



In a nutshell, I like where this film went. It's a well done twist. It took a little too long to get there, maybe, and it really got a little clunky with the exposition toward the end especially, but in the end it worked out nice, I think.
