Here's an great sci-fi short film that's worth a look. With all of the new blockbuster stuff coming out this year, it's nice to see that the small craftsman can still create something worthwhile.

Homes of Hope - Scifi short film from Junaid 'Jay' Syed on Vimeo.

Short Synopsis:
Sets in the self-destructive dystopian near future, where escaping to computer simulation becomes the only way out of the whole mess. A computer scientist Chris becomes the victim of his own invented VR world.

It's a proof of concept short film for a feature film screenplay we are developing, but as a short film, it has got an excellent response at a festival run, by winning "Best Sci-fi Short" title in multiple festivals.
