PLUG – by David Levy – A Science Fiction Short Movie

This is the first film from internationally famend designer and concept artist, David Levy (Tron legacy, Prometheus, Ender’s Game, Tomorrowland, Avatar2).

“On a post-apocalyptic world, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the last human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity deserted the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila can’t forget her mother and father nor ignore her craving to search out other natural life. A hunt she sets out on with a Military Unit, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to find the truth she’s been denied—a reality that sparks her ultimate quest.

The short movie is the first 15 minutes of a Sci-Fi television series Levy has outlined and hopes to film. Not like the extremely VFX-ed Sci-Fi movies inundating audiences right now, PLUG is a return to 1970’s classics like Star Wars and Mad Max with a gritty universe created from mainly real props and locations. Watch it, love it, share it!

Indie science-fiction short movie.

Shot with one 7D and one 5D
Edited and composited utilizing adobecreative suite
3D created with 3ds MAX.

    Great Sci-Fi short, I’d pay to see the full movie or watch the show if made
    into a series.

      thought she was gonna start calling the robot friend Briareos.

    These days it seems like just about anybody with a few bucks and a fast
    computer can put together a short film. Too bad they can’t teach writing.
    “Your people are people”? How about, “Your people are flesh and blood, not
    wires and circuits.” Just as a random example. And the timing of the weapon
    malfunction was off, needed more signs IE sparks etc. Not horrible though.
    I always value writing over effects. You’d be surprised how little it takes
    to achieve the suspension of disbelief. And you always need to empathize
    with your main characters. The bitch just comes off as just that, a bitch.

      +FuZZy961 You assume much about my motive or nature. I find it odd in being
      nothing you claim of me to be represented in my direct and forward opinion.
      You seem truly distraught however given the negative and long winded length
      of your post. If you would like to discuss the matter personally please
      I.M. me and we can discuss the core of your butthurt.

      Well you have a common problem, where you seem to think you need a Masters
      degree before you’re entitled to express an opinion.

      This is just YouTube buddy, you should have stopped your comment at ‘Your
      opinion is noted’, the rest where you shit on his opinion because he didn’t
      display his credentials is unnecessary.

      I suggest you first establish the point in time in which you became king
      dick and were bestowed upon the authority to judge YouTube comments. I must
      have missed that memo which declared we must write a whimsical piece to
      unlock the achievement and earn the title to critique YouTube comments.

      By all means, make a counter argument about what point you disagree with
      his statement, but don’t give me this horse shit about what we must first
      establish, and receive permission on the merits of a fucking can before
      giving an opinion. This isn’t North fucking Korea you fucktard. Its YOUTUBE

      Check your own tin can first.

    • Jac Sperle on November 27, 2015 at 12:23 pm

      Your opinion is noted, and soon washed away by the majority of the people
      who loved this bit. I suggest you first write a whimsical piece and have it
      established in the community before critiquing that of others. It’s hard to
      find credit in the words of one who shits in a tin can.

    Just discovered these shorts and
    P.L.U.G. is the best one I’ve seen so far. The premise of mech’s taking
    care of a human until she finds out “the truth” is an intriguing idea that
    should be expanded on. Good production values here.

    me. The world WILL go to shit if a shitty world is the only thing the
    masses can imagine. Lets think up some new inventions to deal with the
    potential causes of a shitty world, eh? 😉

    That being said, the short film was still good. It looked like Daft Punk
    and Mad Max had a baby and named it Destiny. ;)

    Anyone else feel like the Robots are inspired by Tau? Anyone?

  41. MrBadKitty on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

    so did i just watch Appleseed Zero? EMP takes out complex eletronics, not
    guns or 2-stroke engines. If you are going to rip off: Warhammer 40k Tau
    long rifles, Appleseed’s Briareos, Borderland cantina, Matrix and
    Terminator you might want to try a bit harder. At least do your research on
    what weapons would work post EMP blast.

    the dues ex machina is about the same level as a harry potter book. Least
    the CGI was good. AND why does everyone in the future listen to Dubstep?

    • MrBadKitty on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

      it turns out good in the end for them, look at WALL-e

    • Snow Stranger on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

      Hahaha very true! But I think the cockroaches got the short end of the
      stick in that scenario.

    • MrBadKitty on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

      +Snow Stranger
      my guess is because you dont have to pay royalities with dubstep. You can
      have the zombie outbreak, alien invasion or whatever world ending you
      choose, but there will only be 2 things that survive: cockroaches and the
      MPAA (GEMA here in Germany).

    • Snow Stranger on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

      Applseed Alpha has it, and this feels more inspired from that one
      specifically. I’m partial to a few genres of dubstep but its way overused
      at this point, like you said why is every future person listening to

    • MrBadKitty on August 24, 2015 at 8:24 am

      thank you, at least there’s no dubstep in Appleseed

  43. Valentin Koscheyev on August 14, 2015 at 8:23 am

    An emotionally expressive female in a film? One NOT trying to be a man &
    actually feminine? Insanity! This then makes this film not science fiction
    but fantasy.
    And yes – humans should be eradicated so that Nature takes over.
    We are a corrupt pestilence of insane, war mongering things of
    contamination & destruction. What they do not kill they cripple or
    slaughter, decimating what was reflective of innocence & vitality. What
    they do to earth, air, & water should be punishable by erasure and/or by

    TV guided missiles in 2087? Unlikely. Interesting concept, but I don’t
    think it would get more than 1 season on any network if it gets picked up.
    Sci-fi shows can’t hold an audience these days. Just look at shows like
    Ascension, Terra Nova, etc.. Done well, and I really liked them, but they
    got cancelled because there were not enough viewers.

    Two comments — waving the camera about is ok in small doses, provided you
    can still actually see what is going on. If you can’t see what’s happening,
    there’s not much point in filming it.
    And the raucous music at the end was inappropriate, imho.
    Otherwise, great stuff and thanks.

    not bad, liked the idea, a slightly more “peaceful” take on the terminator
    concept, lots of ideas to work with and many places it could go (where did
    the ships go for instance, what fate awaited humans, what is plugs
    redundancy plan for humans return, ect) however the over all feel was over
    the top amateur, way way way to much time spent looking at black screens
    (sara connor style voice over would of worked much better), completely
    terrible dialog (hostile response to a robot guard seems like a fast way to
    be killed) zero effort establishing connection with characters (we spend
    more time getting to know black screens than we did marker and pals before
    getting shot up), complete lack of context with bar, did leila live there?
    were marker and her just passing through? are they wanderers? why are
    robots hanging out in a bar? ,many good opportunity’s for marker show
    relationship with leila hint at history to help us believe she cares about
    him for later scenes were missed (hey you remember that time we…..), high
    speed chase was unnecessary droid could likely run faster than that
    motorbike or just track its trail with advanced optics, could go on for
    days, but you get the point

  89. Mechknight73 on May 29, 2015 at 10:45 pm

    I hope one day we get to see an expansion of the story. There is so much
    crap being churned out of Hollywood, that they seem to have run out of
    ideas altogether, bar a handful of producers and directors I especially
    love the fact that you didn’t overdo it with CGI A good premise for a
    story, just would like to see more of said plot in a full length movie

    stuff, as a student, to build my reel. What can you suggest?

    This started strong…. and then, “Let go of me dumbass, like omg!”.

    • Giant Squidy on May 14, 2015 at 5:16 am

      +PandaWTG This could be very true. Her acting isn’t far off from a Sci-Fi
      channel actress, in my opinion (which isn’t necessarily bad). But, I’ll
      definitely admit I’m guilty of nit-picking every movie to shreds, so this
      may not have been an issue for many viewers. Science fiction is my favorite
      genre if it’s done correctly, but this just comes down to personal
      preference of what a viewer wants. The overarching dread the beginning of
      this film presented was quite interesting, but I feel it devolved itself
      immediately with a character that seemed so generically “bubbly” if that
      makes sense. Maybe that was the purpose to juxtapose a character such as
      this in such a bleak setting, but with a mythos that is so dreadful I found
      it strange most human characters behaved as such. But, once again, I’m hard
      to please. And, for a [presumably] low budget and independent film, I
      couldn’t have done better myself.

    • PandaWTG on May 14, 2015 at 5:16 am

      +Giant Squidy Yeah, her acting is a little touch and go. Maybe she’s a
      first time actress?

  103. Darksideogi Ogi on May 13, 2015 at 8:45 am

    A great big mess of (as stated) 70’s cliches and ’80s crap production.
    Lame setting or bad location choice, probably both.

    The bots were far to anthropomorphised – they don’t need hands, or even
    humanoid shapes, and had no function at that machine bar in the middle of
    absolutely no where. If humans ‘left the planet for machines to fix’ it
    should look like they’re trying to fix it.

    And her little detector did not point at every plant in range? They’re
    alive, right? Without a circular ecosystem plants in an environment like
    that (Outback Aussieland somewhere) would be dead. Arachnids would be dead
    (and they don’t exist in Aussieland anyway. Black scorpions are not
    terribly poisonous, though they hurt like hell). And human children with
    no farm, no protein (meat from prey, i.e. living animals, or some manner of
    farmed plant like peanuts), and with machines serving no function besides
    sitting at a seedy bar, would be very dead.
    Heck, there was not even any sort of source for that green goo (like, no
    solar panels, wind turbines, drilling stations).
    Standard post-apoc trope: Motorcycles and dune buggies. With internal
    combustion engines, but that run off of green goo batteries. (That’s why
    Mad Max is such a crock of feces – in a world that’s fighting mad over
    fuel, why drive the LEAST fuel efficient machines imaginable??)

    And we won’t go into the SFX/CG – that’s a budgetary thing and they
    probably were pretty limited.

    this is supposed to be a teaser, but you should have give us at least the
    tiniest atom of something of an answer to anything. This doesnt leave me
    looking forvard to more, but dissapointed.
    That said, I thing this could be great 15 minutes of a film.The planned
    series is probably gonna suck (wow adventures in postapocalyptic world, let
    us brush off all the classic sci-fi plots and recycle them for the 1000th

      change, but collectively 6.8 billion people need to make huge strides and
      changes to save this half dead planet, otherwise our own genocide can be
      the only solution, humanity is too stubborn to do anything until it is far
      too late to react, they think just because they dont see the decay of earth
      that it doesn’t exist, yet it is already turning against us in its

    Awesome opening. Great sound. The live action/prop shots seemed to suffer a
    bit at beginning. High speed shutter to compensate for effect? VFX are
    strong points. The actress seemed pretentious and lacked innocence required
    to feel believable to me. Her audio sounds “tinny” or very hollow. By and
    large excellent piece.

    Not a bad flick. I look forward to more episodes. Keep’em coming.

    I can’t get the complaints… In no way!
    I really enjoyed this film a lot! I kinda fell in love with the look: Nice
    costumes, perfect lighting, overall a nicely used looking environment. The
    story also ends with a “terrible” cliffhanger, the film is too short and
    ends exactly where you don’t want it to end. That’s what I call a teaser!
    The only thing not quite matching were the CGI-effects, which are the only
    element in the film that gives it away as a non-Hollywood product. What’s
    the spider bot supposed to do in the first place? He was not designed for
    fighting, that’s obvious.
    I also liked the vehicle action, there really is a Mad Max feeling to it,
    that I like a lot.

    One of the best shorties I ever watched! More please!

    this was phenomenal. everything from the concept to the script to the
    acting was great. my only problem was that the dialogue sounded a little
    bit forced, but at this point i feel like i was just looking for problems.
    it was a great film and I am definitely showing it to all my friends. good

    The creator of this is an amazing person I do wish there was more, because
    it was so good

    I’m rather surprised by the criticisms. I very much enjoyed this short and
    look forward to future episodes around this premise. I thought the
    production values were very high for a short broadcast on YouTube. I’ve
    seen horrible shorts get excessive praise even when it’s Vfx and designs
    were amateurish at best. I hope to see more from this team.

      +midas12354783 Yea, I hate the Transformer movies. They have little to no
      character development, and crappy stories. I’ve heard that Michael Bay
      isn’t making any more Transformer movies. I hope that’s true.

      Short films are usually done by people without money, therefore it should
      be a showcase for story and dialog.(Something that doesn’t cost money but
      imagination) Which pretty graphics is fine, but overemphasizing that only
      leads to God of Travesties like “The Transformers” etc. when people forget
      that watching a story is actually about the plot and not the look, This
      leads and has lead to our modern lack of imagination we have in Hollywood..

    • Andrew Gordon on November 8, 2014 at 12:35 pm

      Well a lot of times, filmmakers don’t have a story, or at least a story
      that is easily interpreted. Short films are often an expression of an
      emotion the filmmaker feels, and they try to portray that through a short
      film. In this case, this was a teaser. By the definition of a teaser, they
      aren’t supposed to give you anything

      +Andrew Gordon I can understand that they don’t have the money to make a
      feature-length movie. What I don’t understand is why almost all the short
      film creators just make a fragment of a story. They know that it’s very
      unlikely they will ever continue the story, but yet they all write it as if
      it’s just the first installment of a much longer work.

      A film doesn’t have to be long to tell a complete story.

      +Eyoldaith well his name “waz wazz” says a lot about his IQ, and his only
      way of insulting someone is by telling them to do something he probably
      does every night to himself so…he’s crazy XD

      If you need actors and are filming in Southern California, I’m in….I love
      SCI FI, and have been told I am a character….
