Taking over four years to make, Jakob Grygier's sci-fi short film EMPSILLNES is an extraordinary achievement.
The moment the short begins, it becomes clear why it has won awards and accolades. Grygier combines CGI and 3D animation to glorious effect.
EMPSILLNES is GORGEOUS, and its images invoke the beauty and grandeur of our solar system.
The short's look and narrative is heavily influenced by iconic movies about space such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, Sunshine, Interstellar and Gravity.
Also of note, while the short has no dialogue, the beautiful and dramatic musical score by Pawel Gorniak is a superb complement to the film.
The short opens on a panoramic view of a gargantuan, heavily damaged space station occupied by a lone astronaut.
Racing against time, the astronaut struggles to find a way to return home to the love he has left behind.
