Watch: 80s-Inspired Fantasy Adventure Short Film ‘The Spirit Machine’

The Spirit Machine Short Film

"Its been missing for 100 years…" Shall we go searching for Thomas Edison's "last" invention? The Spirit Machine is an excellent low budget fantasy adventure short film made by filmmaker Timothy Plain. The story is about a father and daughter who go on a search for a long, lost turn-of-the century Edison device (called The Spirit Machine). There's an impressive amount of backstory to this, and a good introduction that makes it captivating to follow as it plays out. Starring Andrea Ferreyra and Will Springhorn Jr. This has been described as "Indiana Jones meets The Prestige", and inspired by 80s classics like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Poltergeist. It's not perfect, but I admire the ambition and the VFX are great. Fire it up below. ›››
