The Black Hole is an amazing short film from 2008 by UK directors Phil Sampson and Olly Williams. I first saw this short several years ago and I was floored by the simplicity and effectiveness of their concept.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you need a certain budget or specific resources in order to execute your creative vision. Creativity thrives when the maximum restraints are placed upon you or your project, whether it’s money, time, resources or manpower. This short accomplishes in less than three minutes what some Hollywood blockbuster never do- clarity of premise and precision execution.
Please watch the film and let us know if you love it as much as we do!

I love this short film. I actually saw it previously. So much meaning crammed into almost 3 minutes. I completely agree with you that you don’t need a big budget for good content. I prefer older films for this very reason because they cared about the meaning and content, rather than special effects.
Thanks for the comment Miriam! Good storytelling (and storytellers) still exist today in all mediums. We need to seek out and reward good storytelling- vote with your $$$.
