REMANENCE is a quiet and thoughtful short film that proves a multi-million dollar production budget is not necessary for telling a engaging science fiction story.
Written by David Hudson and Jono Seneff, the short opens in a college classroom where the students are being lectured by their professor.
The topic is an interesting one: how we tend to make devastating natural occurrences - such as volcanic eruptions and hurricanes - seem like relatable characters by giving them human names.
The danger in this, the professor posits, is we lose a healthy respect for the awesome forces of nature we all are subject to.
The more speculative aspect of the short film comes at the end in the form of a great, apropos twist.
Suffice to say the short's title is a very subtle hint as to what the twist is.
