Ok, the aesthetic fails. Which is a shame because it's a kind of fun riff on The Thing that gets pretty pulp towards the end. The best thing about this short was actually the quality of the sound work, with the odd exception of a gust of wind hitting a mic at one point.
Anyway, I don't get why they'd shoot at night to look like day except for the technology headline they've achieved on NFS. They'd have been better off making the effect a little more subtle and aiming to have it look more like night.

I'm kinda surprised by the amount of use the Blackmagic cameras have been getting on docs. I guess it's fine for static sit down shots but for any movement it must be a no-go.
