41 DOG – THE BEDSIT SCENE (REVIEW)

41 DOG (THE BEDSIT SCENE)

‘An amazement when it comes to the Sci-Fi style but with a very
PUNK EDGE style.’

With lot’s of important news and messages regarding the GREEN – POLITICS
and views about our government and why it is run in a certain way.

STEVEN J HUMPHREY – extremely topped up with knowledge about our economic system and why it is so unfair regarding the poverty and environmental slaughter that happens all around us.

THE BOSCOMBE BEDSIT SCENE – speaks for itself, in a grotto bed sit slum in ‘Boscombe’ where two people are upset by their friends disappearance. Pounced on by the police and CID, these people who are seen to lead ordinary lives are yet to discover that their missing friend is in fact a time traveler, and that they are approaching the discovery of what is known as OUR MULTI-VERSE. (universe with more that one dimension)

STEVEN J HUMPHREY (FILM/E-BOOK AND SCRIPT WRITER/DIRECTOR) – Has an interesting style in this whereby he indicates every minor detail and creates an environment which is on edge in every minute. With a thriller/action style – this unique short in the introduction of a mind-bending film with Sci-Fi intellect and catching designs created by STEVE HUMPHREY himself.
