The superhero, Hightail, teleports one too many times after being chased and finds himself in a different dimension.


Gorgeous film, from the steadicam footage outside with superb framing and understanding of lighting, to the light prisms and BLADE RUNNER inspired neon fused interiors. The exceptionally done original Vangelis-inspired new wave soundtrack was also absolutely on point as a superhero tries to teleport their way out of entrapment.

But story is king in this competition and despite the overlord's comments almost bringing this through the meta end of the tunnel by playing with the whole concept of viewership and three dimensions there was just not enough for me, personally, in terms of an engaging storyline.

It is a tough one because I feel like you were trying hard to evoke a feeling and a mood to the proceedings, giving the story engaging visual flourishes such as the nature shots and rainbow beams. But whilst visually distinctive a lot of the time it genuinely felt like style over substance as these beautiful shots did little to progress the actual plot.

There was something here that I think if it had been clearer would have really elevated the film. How we are all trapped to the screen, we are all the heroes in our own story. But glossing over these elements meant the focus was on the Audio Visual experience, and whilst memorable, would have been even better with a stronger dramatic arc.

Story: 1.5/5
Technical: 4/5
Elements: 2.5/5
Overall: 2/5
