There's no direct way to pitch you on watching Manifest Destiny, a short film by first timer filmmakers Darrel and Doug Walters, other than to say it's a clever, resourceful example of the kind of sci-fi two brothers can cook up in their garage with a $500 camera and some medical supplies bought off of eBay. If I say too much beforehand, I'll risk robbing all the fun in discovering what it's really about. Don't worry about the vague details though, when I say short film, I mean a short film. In 3 minutes and 40 seconds you'll share the same job-well-done smile I've still got on my face.
