Streaming online Sci-fi, a bunch of it free, is what Watch Sci-Fi Dot Com is all about. They are the folks who put together the SCI-FI-LONDON Film Festival each year, and the collection of amazing short films produced specifically for that event makes up a portion of the free-to-watch content. I certainly don’t mind paying them for the few non-free presentations I watch, since most of the ones I select can not be viewed from North America any other way. Check them out, and let me know what you think.

The short CGI film Autonomous began life as a demo for a bigger story, and was completed by two people in their free time over the course of 2 years. Aleksei Shulga did directing, modeling, shading, vfx, and compositing, while Mihhail Kohtov did riging, animation, sfx and sound design. The music they used was created by Mikhail Pridonov. I did not find an mention about who wrote it and did the storyboards, but my guess would be Aleksei.

In the animated short film Sumer by Alvaro Garcia the ionosphere has been destroyed, and the planetary ecosystem followed close behind it. The animals and plants died a while ago, leaving one small group of humans in an artificial environment. In nine minutes this film tells quite a complex story, and in the year it has been making the Film Festival circuit it has won over 50 awards, including winning 14 Festivals outright. Thanks to CGI Bros for making this available online.
