The Black Hole is what I think is the perfect example of a great short film. It is both simple and effective and it captivates audiences within the first few seconds. It has a meaningful underlying message.
Since we will soon be making our own single camera dramas I have taken to looking at existing shorts for inspiration.
The Black Hole carries a strong message about society’s greed, how it is our ultimate downfall. It shows a man in a mundane office job who stumbles upon a mysterious black hole while making photocopies. He realises the things he can do with the black hole, it begins with stealing a chocolate bar from a vending machine but it then leads to grand theft.
There is no denying it is one of the most interesting concepts for a short film round.
