  1. Honored to have ‘The Shipment’ screening on Dust. I’m the writer/director and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  2. What great writing and directing. I absolutely was fascinated and intrigued by this particular short film. Exquisitely done!

  3. Well that felt like a feature .. great mini movie!

  4. Hey! That's aleks paunovic! I fuckin love him! Totally under rated actor! So cool to see him pop up in a dust clip! ☺️👍👍

  5. I look at these ships andnask how is it so easy for Dust to get it right and so hard for the designers of Eve to get it so wrong….

  6. Ayo this is really good. He did the right thing in the end and I think that's cool! I was heartbroken he couldn't even give his daughter a real hug at the end!

  7. Fabulous effort. Well done!

  8. ปลาหมึกทำได้แบบไหน
    เราก็ทำได้แบบนั้น

  9. Good to see Gollum get other roles.

  10. Dude, thats fucking steven seagal!

  11. Part of the MCU I Love It.

  12. Another great film! I just think it needed some🌶 or just a bit more, but in total it was fabulous 🙏 I liked it & hope I could be part of your amazing team.

  13. Father’s sacrifice for his child, priceless and ageless.

  14. very well done and presented excellent casting but I wonder why everyone addressed the issue of slavery as a matter totally unrelated to what it really is; only a commercial negotiation with a movable property whose value is clearly and absolutely defined by the state of the property, blows, bruises, loss of teeth, poor condition in general makes them lose any fair commercial value, nobody buys damaged fruit and the fruit is worth much less than a slave, a slave is a profit-producing asset, something extremely valuable because it generates wealth, goods and services for its owner, therefore the better the state of the slave, the greater its value and vice versa, this also surprises me as the theme of the story He puts himself like an overprotective father in a world in which not only is this not done, but also he is not in economic conditions nor does his moral environment allow it. In addition to this, there is the clear ignorance that the girl has of her reality. She only drives unreal conditioning of their lifestyle that will only bring dire consequences in the future because it will only make enemies for them. it is a reality adjustable to our environment, yes, but our reality does not exist there.

  15. @Bobby Bala This is awesome, special effects are great. Story is morally sound and gripping. And what is that snakelike creature, does it emit a type a neurotoxin of some sort upon bite?

  16. Didn't like the fact that Dad's are always portrayed as some deadbeat, who couldn't take care of his daughter!! This is no different than Hollywood propaganda!

  17. You guys are awesome great work,keep them coming again 😀great work,THANK'S COMMENT FROM CHICAGO…

  18. I hope they don't do a cavity search because I have no doubt that snake thing will be hiding in there 😂

  19. Just wow and one of my favorite Actors on board too! (pleasantly surprised!) Great story, great Actors great film! Thank you!!!

  20. Well.. that ended badly. :/
