Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.28.09] post apocalyptic movie news short



From Columbia, we have a 15 minute PA short written and directed by Ruben Fernandez. Shot on 16mm, the film has a great realistic and dusty look to it with some decent costume design. We first heard about it over at Opium a few days back, but with the holidays in full swing, only got a chance to watch it now.

Synopsis:
25 years into the future, civilization has been destroyed by nuclear war. Andres, one of the few survivors, searches for a mythical place called The Oasis, the only hope for mankind.

Oasis Terminal stars Andres Sandoval, Ruben Di Pietro, Rey Vazques, Catalina Navas, Julian Caballero
Executive Producers: Veronica Echeverri, Lucrecia Villa.

Watch the short after the break.

Love PA, but I was bored with this short. Showing scenes out of sequence is an old trick and the dialog was stilted and predictable.

After the opening sequence the oasis is mentioned once and that's it. What is the purpose of even having it in the story? Nobody actually searches for it.

The fortress that is destroyed is the oasis.

Wow, that was bad. Very few (if any) redeeming qualities. It was poorly written, acted and executed. Music was ok?
