VOD: The Raven

Set in a futuristic Downtown Los Angeles that is policed by LAPD drones, 'The Raven' is a short film about one man with special powers on the run from the authorities. Running from what appear to be the far-off prodigy of military Predator drones, Chris Black uses telekinetic powers to evade, destroy, and otherwise thwart the LAPD. Trust us, you haven't seen the LAPD this bad.

The short film, made on a $5000 budget, is attracting a lot of attention, even from big studios like Universal. According to the Latino Review, the studio is in talks with Mark Wahlberg to work the project. For more details, check out the blog post that tipped us off.

The film's website can be found here.


If you've got some extra time, here are two other clips that feature Downtown Los Angeles. The first is 'The Exiles,' the second is the filming of the just-released blockbuster 'Inception.' Bet you've never seen a train on Spring Street before!
