Check out this rousing sci-fi short film made without any budget whatsoever. As Aaron Sims has put it, “This has been a labor of love on a budget of $0 with personal expense on my part and no funding. It makes it all worth while when we see other poeple responding to it.”

Archetype is an impressive and exciting self-made film that was produced by Aaron Sims, a concept/creature designer and a first-time director. The short features actors Robert Joy (Land of the Dead, CSI:NY) and David Anders (Heroes, 24).

Hopefully, it gets the buzz it deserves and develops into a full-length feature at some point. Also, check out Keloid.
