@17:11Alright sorry for leaving two comment but now that I've watched the whole thing I've realised what amazing work you really did do with this - Horatio's trip had all of the feelings of a dream - it went from whimsical to scary to just plain weird. The story really sucks you in - I found myself with my nose nearly touching the screen by the end so I wouldn't miss a single detail.

@11:11You've captured everything so perfectly in this - at this moment I actually felt scared for the main character. The whole thing has an almost alice-in-wonderland feel to it. Awesome, awesome work!

@15:13I loved it, very creative and it's an interesting view of Horatio's Trip to insanity caused by his mentor's death, However, i do agree with Neho about the 3d scenes but im sure you'll improve that in your next film.

Congratulations.

@03:14I can only say that the transitions are perfect giving it a flow and meter one tends to think of as poetry. But I won't insult you by saying this is something as common as a poem. This is art.

When Albert Einstein dies, his devoted assistant, Dr. Horatio Pettincourt, steals the brain of the famed physicist. Hoping to uncover the secrets of the universe, Pettincourt learns to face his own fears, conquer the quandaries of time & space and discovers the magic of his own vision.

Einstein's Playground was my graduate thesis from USC film school. The film took nearly two years to complete. It has screened in over 40 film festivals in the US and overseas and was featured in the New York Times.

Given 2008-01-05
Einstein's Playground by *mheckerling "For its incredible cinematography and mind blowing story. You'll see what I mean when you watch it." This truly is an amazing short film cinematic experience. One of the strongest films on deviantART to date! ( Suggested by dotcommer and Featured by FallenRox )

@17:30This is one of the most nice things I've seen lately! Very well produced, and the concept, as well as the actors, are just amazing! I loved Einstein's dead body. It was creeping and wonderful at the same time, that line of the cut in the head...
Wonderful job!!
