Payload is a vimeo-staff pick!!
Payload gets a fantastic write-up on SHORT OF THE WEEK.
Working with the approach that “sci-fi is at its best when it is about people”, Payload manages to find that rare equilibrium in its genre—a balance between visual impact (or “moments of awe” as the director describes them) and a dramatic narrative.
