Cool Videos: Christian Swegal's short film Stasis

Sep. 10, 2010by: George Merchan

Our original intent with our "Cool Videos" section was not just to put a spotlight on genuinely funny, hilariously retarded, or simply straight cool as shit movie-related videos. We also wanted to be an outlet to showcase budding filmmakers. Artists with self-made projects looking for an outlet to have their material seen. People with cool short films we feel are worth checking out.

Today we have just that. Filmmaker and JoBlo.com reader Christian Swegal has put together an impressive 25-minute sci-fi/action short film called STASIS, featuring the likes of Reshad Strik, Beau Bridges, Ernie Hudson, and Rachel Specter. And everyone worked for free, with much of the stuff in the film having been donated in hopes of generating a quality product. Check it out!

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Extra Tidbit: Ernie Hudson!

Great!

The story was great and it was well paced! I really enjoyed the editing. Going back and forth through the timeline and the bedroom scenes. I think the ambient music tied it all together for me.

If you are a reader at this site i was just curious on how you guys filmed the snow scenes. You can tell that it is fake snow but this is a limited budget short film and you worked wonders with what you had. I was just curious where you filmed that scene and what materials went into making it.

Normally I'm the first to knock on these type of fan made movies because they're usually pretty bad and I like to be honest, but I really liked this movie. Nothing but praise and props to Christian Swegal. Very cool story, great atmospheric vibe and look and don't even get me started on that headshot.

Very well done

Lot of predictable elements to a very well told story. I was drawn into it from the very first frame. Some parts of it felt exactly like Memento, while others, unexplicably, like The Matrix.

As Antarius says below, excellent music and decent acting by everyone involved.

an enjoyable short. The acting was decent, the music brilliant and the story kept my interest. I'm sure there's lots of quality films like this around that people dont get the pleasure of seeing. props to the director for a decent film.
