SOLO is a 5 minute film that details the first day in the life of an exploratory android sent to explore a potentially habitable planet for the sake of humankind’s survival. But he’s not the only one. Hundreds of other androids have been sent to different planets. Humans will choose only one planet to inhabit. The rest of the androids are doomed to wander alone, hoping that, one day, they will meet their creators.
SOLO was made as part of the Durban Short Film Challenge, which is associated with the Durban International Film Festival, South Africa’s premiere film event. The name pretty much says it all. It’s a challenge. While making a short film is always tough, making a short film on no budget in three weeks with a small crew is truly a mental and physical feat. But we loved every minute of it.
