I just can’t believe the kind of top-notch quality that amateurs are able to produce today with limited resources and on a shoe-string budget. Technology is indeed a creativity liberating force and indie film-makers are the proof. So check out the latest example below. It is David Weinsein’s Envoy.

In my opinion Envoy must become a full-length feature film because in mere 10 minutes it packs a decent emotional story, suspense, action, kick-ass VFX, great sound and cinematography – a feat that most big-budget Hollywood productions usually fail to accomplish.

Envoy Film Synopsis: Envoy is a science fiction, action adventure, short film to be used as a proof of concept for a larger full-length motion picture. It is the story of a troubled young boy who befriends a deadly alien creature, and embarks on a life changing journey. A love-letter to many of the classic action-adventure and science fiction films of the ’80s & ’90s, Envoy is a passion-project created by Director David Weinsein and Visual Effects Supervisor Adam Coggin.

Weinstein and his team combined traditional film-making techniques with cutting-edge visual effects and animation to meticulously craft the nine-minute short film. The goal is to introduce the story and concept of Envoy to fans and financiers while demonstrating the teams ability to craft high-budget content for a fraction of the cost.
