“We are risking everything in this match!” Always love stumbling across work like this. Thanks to a tip from Quiet Earth, there’s a short film worth watching if you haven’t seen it yet. Titled Virtual, or Pixel Theory: La Caja de Pandora, the film is set in the future where virtual reality has become so advance that most people spend most of their lives in a VR world. Juno is a professional player of a video game called “Laserball”, but when he is killed in-game he must spend a few hours in the real world where he is reunited with this father. The video game has outstanding VFX, and it opens with some badass action before delving into the story. There is a Kickstarter for a full feature but they won’t make their goal. Take a look anyway.

Description from Vimeo: In a future decadent world where the humankind has taken refuge in virtual reality to live their dreams and adventures as the real world falls apart. A professional player of the Laserball league is disqualified during the game and forced to be disconnected for a few hours. Returning to the real world, he is reunited with his father. The clash between their realities reopens old wounds. Virtual, also known as La Caja de Pandora, is a short film project written & directed by Spanish filmmaker Daniel Hernández Torrado (his website). You can find the Kickstarter here. The film received a special mention at the Sitges Film Festival. For info, visit the official site. For more shorts, click here. Thoughts?
