Creaky Pipes – A narrated short

Creaky Pipes – A narrated short

I wrote and narrated this short story as part of a collaboration on my narrative YouTube channel. It was a fun experience and I hope you get a chance to listen.

Either way here is the audio and the story, feel free to read or listen.

Here is a short story that forms the first part of a mixed media piece I am working on.  I intend to continue it as a series of short films on my YouTube channel.

I am enjoying the freedom I have to blend my mediums and extend my story telling in different ways, even if it is difficult and much more time consuming than I’d like.

Oats Studio: Some of the best Science Fiction I’ve seen in a while

Oats Studio: Some of the best Science Fiction I’ve seen in a while

In case you haven’t had a chance to see these shorts take a minute to check out these three amazing mini Science Fiction films from director Neill Blomkamp.  He’s the guy that directed District 9, Elysium and Chappie.  These shorts are his new project, working with big name actors on mini passion projects.  Each film takes place in a fully realized Science Fiction world and they are great examples of short films.  Each one could be made into an amazing feature film and leaves you wanting more while also feeling satisfied.  There are only three so far but there will be more to come.

Check out Oats Studios on YouTube.  Here are the shorts:
