Angels Fall in This Short by a CoWriter of Doctor Strange

first_imgStay on target Remembering Comics Legend Steve DitkoCarrie Coon Joins Infinity War, A Strange Sequel and More MCU News The fourteenth installment in the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange, is in theaters now and was co-written by screenwriter and author C. Robert Cargill. The task of adding the layer of mystical arts to Marvel’s space-and-science universe might have been his largest task yet, but it’s far from his first rodeo. Doctor Strange’s director Scott Derrickson worked with Cargill to create Sinister, and in 2013 he became a fantasy author with his novel Dreams and Shadows. Now, it looks like Cargill has turned his storytelling craft to the world of angels.As They, Continue To Fall is a short proof-of-concept film written by C. Robert Cargill and directed by Nikhil Bhagat and it doesn’t portray angels in a typical way. There’s something wrong with these winged creatures and although it’s unclear if they’ve been cast out of heaven or something else entirely. What we do learn is that our protagonist wanderer (played by actor John Henry Whitaker), is capable of seeing these monstrosities and has been since he was a child. That blessing (or curse…probably curse), has made the lead character into the man he is today, a vengeful vagrant who collects feathers as keepsakes.Shot on an Arri Alexa camera byThe short is a calling card for Nikhil Bhagat, cinematographer Noah Rosenthal, and visual effects artists Andy Wong and Ben Hall as well as a potential introduction to a larger story and story world. The short was shot on an Arri Alexa camera and creates a sparsely lit city standing in for a larger dystopian society teased in the short film’s plot description:“[The short] tells the story of a homeless man who hunts fallen angels in a dystopian society filled with crime and corruption. Haunted by a dark past, yet hopeful for the future, he continues to hunt as they continue to fall.” There’s obviously more to the vagrant’s past and the mythology of the angels to be told…like if the angel feathers are so flammable, is lining your jacket you wear near open flames really the best idea? Or maybe he could, like, light himself on fire and charge a group of angels, so it’s a tactical decision?Like many proofs of concept shorts, the only way to find out is to spread the word and hope that someone allows Cargill, Bhagat and the production team to tell the full story. Unlike a lot of proof of concept shorts, this one isn’t asking for your crowdfunding money!You can follow the film on Twitter at @ATCTF_last_img
