New York, NY – Tuesday, April 9, 2013
It’s so great when a short film comes along with an interesting concept, good witty writing, slick design, and amazing execution. Special Effects (SPFX) have gotten so good that this small team has been able to meld hand held shot footage with CG so seamlessly that it rivals a Hollywood Blockbuster in artistic professionalism.
:::SPOILERS::: The Centrifuge Brain Project is a 7 minute short film set on Earth in a fantasy parallel universe where a scientist (played by Leslie Barany), who is seemingly also part architect, part circus carny, demonstrates a series of beautifully designed futuristic centrifugal amusement park rides which (if working properly) would increase a human’s capacity to learn. He goes through the design and testing stages from the late 70s to present day, detailing the many R&D failures that have lead to the rides they have currently. (Watch the film above)
Over the past year The Centrifuge Brain Project has traveled to film festivals all over the world and has won 25 prestigious awards. Only in recent months has the film been released to the internet.
