Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life.

I really hope they saved at least one good short for the end, we got four mediocre shorts in a row now.

Strongly disagree with that assessment but Alone was my favourite.

D88M's always incorrect, pay no heed.

I'd say night shift was indeed mediocre.

Specimen and Ore were both fantastic.

Containment has grown on me slightly, merely as a character piece.

I have big hopes for this one.

Ore was certainly better acted and shot than Night shift, but I still find Ore not as good as Specimen. Ore does have a leg up on Containment with more for the characters to do, but I find Containment the better film with those characters being more developed (even if they are really simple).

I just hope the next short is better because Specimen is still the only short that really grabbed me.

For me it goes from best to worst;
Specimen
Containment
Ore
Night Shift

Because of the "twist" in the trailer?

This one was really good. Sits up among Ore and Specimen for me. I really enjoyed all three of those.

I don't want to say much about this one but... it is going to be controversial. I'm so glad this one was made. Maybe not as technically well made as Ore and Specimen, but some seriously intriguing ideas, the best music of the bunch, and some really fun miniature work, too!
