Written and directed by Ridley Scott's son Luke, Loom is a 20 minute short that was commissioned to help showcase the prototype 4K (opens in new tab) REDray 3D cinema laser player.

Being a member of the Scott family has its good points, which include the ability to secure some major talent. Taking up the lead roles in Loom are Giovanni Ribisi (opens in new tab) and Jellybean Howie (opens in new tab), with cinematography handled by Dariusz Wolski (opens in new tab).

The movie takes place in a dystopian future, where meat is grown in silos for human consumption, and genetic modification is commonplace. Fans of explosions and break-dancing robots will be dissappointed, as the story unravels slowly. But this short is beautifully shot, and Blade Runner fans should certainly enjoy it.

The film was intended to push the limits of exposure and colour range, and there's a higher resolution version available for download here (opens in new tab).
