Short Shout - Watch The Unique Sci-Fi/Urban Thriller Short ‘Transporter’

Transporter

One thing for sure, it certainly is different. But that’s what we like.

You might recall back in May that we posted HERE an item writer/director Daman Colquhoun's Kickstarter campaign for his short film Transporter.

Well it looks like it worked out for him, and his short is now finally finished and ready to be seen.

With Taimak, Ibn Dixon, Petronia Paley, Nelcie Souffrant and Quadiri Bolare in the cast, the film is an “an all-black sci-fi psychological thriller about a young man (played by Oliver) at a crossroads in his troubled life.

I don’t want to say anymore about it and let you discover it for yourself. But the journey to make the film, like all films, wasn’t easy.

According to Colquhoun, his film project “was born out of Ron Howard's / Canon's Project Imaginat10n Photo Contest.” However, his image - Manhattan's Many Moons - ultimately wasn't chosen by any of the five celebrity directors to inspire their short films.

But that didn’t stop Colquhoun; and when Canon, shortly afterward, announced their Project Imaginat10n Film Contest, he went for it.

From the first day of Canon's official contest announcement, Damon had less than four months to conceive, write, fundraise, cast, produce, and deliver the film. 

Now, Transporter is a finalist (1 of 20 out of hundreds), and Colquhoun is anticipating that Transporter will be one of their five winning films.

Wish him luck..

Take a look at Transporter for yourself:
