 "Reflections" Review 
Add to favorites
At slightly more than four minutes, this first sci-fi short from filmmaker Timofey Yuriev is proof positive of how much can be done on a mere budget of $1,000 when one combines special effects, vision and a storyline based upon true events.
Yuriev's direction blends beautifully with the cinematography of Laurie Melton to create a film that takes a more meditative approach to the sci-fi genre. While "Reflections" is most certainly beautiful to behold, it is clearly designed to appeal to sci-fi fans and/or those who spend their days contemplating the mysterious of the universe from an intellectual perspective. In a mere four minutes, Yuriev gives us much to digest and "Reflections" is definitely the kind of short that benefits from multiple viewings.
