21-year-old Stephen Lunsford has won Doubleday’s book video contest, creating a one-minute short for Daniel H. Wilson‘s new novel, Robopocalypse.
The young filmmaker won $750 for his video. We’ve embedded his winning entry above–what do you think?
Lunsford explained his video in the release: “The definite inspiration for the short was the Alien (1979) trailer; in my opinion it’s the best movie trailer of all time … While I would have liked to have had more shots to add to the film, ultimately my cast/crew was mostly unavailable save for one afternoon and night. We shot the whole thing in about four hours in Toluca Lake/Burbank.”
