Sci-Fi Short Film “FTL” | DUST


  1. Want more DUST? Check out the latest short film "LIMBO" and get lost with us:

    One man's search for his kidnapped daughter causes his reality to unravel.

  2. This was funny 😂. They lost the newly designed ship though

  3. The Other Scenario is where he ends up being dissected

  4. So they have FTL communications, very advanced.

  5. This film has my favorite FTL effect in all of sci-fi! <3

  6. hope to have a part 2 of this short film. beautiful.

  7. That was nice of the aliens 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  8. Dizzlike for this fucking sheet. Точно не знаю как дерьмо по английски

  9. According to a scale those aliens are a Class 2 civilization meaning they can Harvest all of their energy available and they're available solar system that is a visual Class 2 but they could be a class 5 and they don't even know it

  10. Best alien series was V in the 80s and then the X-FILES in the 90s.

  11. This was an incredible production!

  12. We need a scyfy series and movies dealing with megastructures

  13. I liked this more than most


  15. Not for. Too many cliches, very Netflix. Rubbish.

  16. Hello..
    Hi…. DAD… Mr…. Ms's USA Jonathan Goldsmith's Steps Son 👽
    See you…. Up space… Sci 👽…. To, Earth 🌎
    Dos equis USA Dr MD Gen's Lab Corp NYC's world 🌍 your jobs…. Sa ❤️

  17. windshield on space shuttle? why?

  18. 2001 l’odyssée de l'espace, vous connaissez ? non ? vous devriez le voir, il y a beaucoup de similitudes dans l'ensemble.

  19. Imagine making first contact? Imagine this story actually happening but the "aliens" coming back to take over the Earth and help the A.I. Robots (or Android's) run this planet. Maybe they'd do a better job than we have. But somehow I don't see prison terms anymore unless you count "prison planets." We laugh at stuff like this, but it wasn't so long ago we laughed about personal computers, cars that would go over a hundred miles per hour, and wrist watch "radios." We now have smart phones that have more computing power than the computers that put a man on the moon. Wrist watches that tell us more about our "insides" than most doctors can. So have fun watching stuff like this and laugh thinking it's all science fiction. Do you think our parents or grand parents dreamt of the technology we have today? And are you so "cocky" that you think we are the ONLY intelligent life in the universe? Wait and see.

  20. I always imagine that if aliens are really out there and they have technology far far ahead of us, they would not be like us…..
    Hunger…..War…..Jihad….. Deceit……
    Politics….. Bureaucracy……
    They would be like the one shown in this amazing story.

  21. Thank You! This is a wonderful Science Fiction film.
    We who live on our once pristine and bountiful Earth, this jewel in a relatively endless Creation Universe, have been denigrating and attacking peaceful visitors from the depths of Time and Space for at least one century. For the most part, we continue to do so.
    How have extraterrestrial Cosmonauts responded to attacks upon themselves and their inconceivably advanced Starships/Beamships (Raumschiffe/Strahlschiffe)? They leave, without even one confirmed and corroborated case of aggression against Earth Human Beings, or damage/destruction of property, by any Extraterrestrial Cosmonaut(s) or their craft.
    Peace has only been achieved by Peaceableness.
    Mögest Du in das Licht, der Wahrheit, und dem SEIN der Schöpfung leben.

  22. This was the first DUST that I watched and I've watched it many times since. DUST is a cracking channel.

  23. Shity story and very false family and sentimentalism.

  24. It true we deport the guy because she don't have any passport

  25. I need this to be a movie 😭😭

  26. Did anyone else come here from Tiktok ?

  27. During a time when Hollywood has forsaken good wholesome stories we see work like this. It is refreshing and reassuring that there is great talent dedicated to expressing the good and positive in our existence.

    Well done!

    Thank you so much.

  28. Alien :you ilegal ,ill will deport you

  29. Macht mehr daraus 😊 Wer sind diese Wesen usw?

  30. Nádherný príbeh . Ďakujem za zdieľanie .

  31. "….a first contact. this is way ahead my pay roll…" what the heck? Just say "hello, here I am, after you manipulated my FTL Drive in such a unwanted manner!" 😉
