Plot Device - inexpensive short film thats puts mega movies to shame

Plot Device, a short film directed by Seth Worley (and funded by the Magic Bullet plugin folks), does a good job balancing story and how’d-they-do-that.

The behind-the-scenes is longer than the short itself, but worth watching. Beyond the software, it’s impressive how much Worley and his collaborators were able to do with minimal crew and equipment. Everything they’re doing is well within reach of a high school student. The challenge, as always, is combining what’s possible with what’s interesting.
