Gavin Kelly of Piranha Bar has directed a rather clever short film called “Avatar Days”. Amazingly, it was filmed and produced in just four days. In fact, it was made to take part in the “4 day Film” category in the Darklight Film Festival. You know; I tried to buy the fomain name darklight.com back […]
