[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where every day we'll be supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]
I'll be kicking off this regular feature here at the Squad with what is easily my favorite short film of the year. That may sound like it is setting the bar high, but that's the point. I'm not exactly a short film connoisseur, so I must confess an alternate agenda here. By tasking myself with finding something worthy of your idle time Monday through Friday, I hope to amass an armada of general sci-fi badassery best absorbed in under 15 minutes.
I present for your viewing pleasures the short film Hemlock. I'll speak nothing of its merit other than what the film's creator, Tyson Ibele, had to say when he posted it on Vimeo, "Here's a film I made for the latest CGSociety challenge...the theme was to adapt an ancient myth to steampunk stylings."
