    enter in time. loop some decisions want to get out of time loop

  • __Niko__

    Fuck it is a never ending loop

  • Fifth House

    The reaction of coming out of your tent and just scratching your head and smiling really just killed it for me. Pretty sure you'd just go, "WHAT THE FUCK!?!?"

  • Airton Granero

    How you did the scene where you talk to yourself? I like the ending by the way.

  • kwabe5000g

    makes sense when you think about it time loop

  • lazoputz

    Interesting film, except for the music, I watched (and enjoyed) it nevertheless.

  • whitesky18

    Well done. Good paradox re: converging & diverging timelines...

  • Daniel Calegari

    I love to watch short movies... a lot of time they are almost shit, but sometimes they are GREAT, VERY NICE, like yours! Congratulations from Brazil!

  • Jack Wingo

    Very enjoyable and entertaining, makes one think, which is a good thing.

  • whendric so

    I bet Scott Fatt is skinny.

  • Phrenetic

    Who else would have grabbed the jacket and put it on outside instead of zipping the tent? That film's actually really good but come on, he didn't change his undies or something, he put on a jacket. Who is too shy to do this in front of their friends or inside an unzipped tent? :D Still like it, though :)

  • Anita Foster

    Ooohh...I want one!!

  • Banguts

    At 2:00 I wouldn't have even stuck more than my head out before I zipped that bitch right back up. Fuck the mid-west

  • Robert Stokes

    Hey did you attend the Colorado film school

  • Mimi Singha

    No need to save money for world tour after retirement.

  • Mark Gohl

    Nice Concept. Very good and perfectly watch-able file. Liked it a lot :)

  • Gabriella Ross

    I feel like only those who watch Dr Who truly understand what's going on XD

  • Jody Fulford

    @ Robert Fatt That was one of the most intriguing no-budget flicks I have ever seen. Well done and keep at it.

  • Cee Didley

    that was ''intents'' lol

  • Bravo Kilo

    Lack of logic.Why would he go in the tent and zip it up to put on a jacket?Why would you be happy to suddenly be in a different place, that would be terrifying.You just met yourself and instead of exploring this idea you tell him to essentially go away?Why is he chasing after his past self and getting frustrated by it?Why does the tent disappear in the other places but not at the original.What overall purpose does this magical tent serve? What's the point of each location?Poor acting. (See various other comments)Lazy ending. "The main character's original decision to get his jacket alters the future and creates the time loop but in a parallel universe he makes a difference decision and therefore never discovers the time loop and the future version of himself disappears."What was the point then?And wouldn't they just find the time loop once they go in the tent later?Not to say there isn't good stuff here, but everyone complimenting flaws is not going to make someone a better film maker.

  • jonjon

    Not how I would act at first

  • Gerardo Pedraza

    Overall good but... He says he will grab a jacket and puts on a shirt? Also why close the tent to put on a shirt?

  • Nate Lance

    Before the very ending, like after he disappears coming out of the tent I thought it meant he was now stuck in a closed-circuit loop, just stuck going in and out of the tent forever, haha

  • Martha Gillespie

    Lost in space or time or different realities? Poor dialogue, poor acting, nice scenery. Too bad if the zip in the tent flap jammed. Kiwi accents?

  • Enrico Goncalves

    I want this tent to escape from my miserable fucking life

  • gefluzafix

    het, heres a fun factor, im not chrono-complacent. i have three working time machine models in secondlife , but the major factor ? is i would never except a time stream that involved the destruction of myself or others. one time hole can lead to another if enough energy is available. fortunately a jump of only 60 seconds requires about 13 lightning strikes (~12,899,996,554 joules) of electricity. so until i release the concept of the plasma-ion-mercury^ferrofuild-tungsten^buckyball reactor, you wont have beens. alls im asking for is the good life and ample opportunities to make the world a better place, im talking a black vine debit card with an unlimited pool. then ill be happy to law out all the plans and designs. mostly im jsut itneresting in having my own fun and making the world a better place through inventions and optimizations ,such as gene hacking grass to produce even mroe oxygen. i have tons of plans guys/ 2

  • Theophilus Taiwo Martins

    Oh!! I get the ending!!! He ceases to exist because he never goes to get his jacket, so none of that ever happened... sort of..?

  • James Paden

    Neat. Spatial travel is wrong, place doesn't change, so that seems off to me. But all else is great. If you had spent a lot more you could have done props and set design better, I'm sure. I don't see how, but, I don't make movies. The STORY of this was what I liked, a LOT. The after credits scene only confused it. That one part has no explanation in the whole clip. I would either junk it, or edit in footage that explains it. Everyone who had a part in making this did an excellent job. Kudos.

  • Isaiah Esters

    the girl'sen shirt changes colours near the end, from tan to black.

  • Dennis Miller

    'You have just entered the shadows of the Twilight Zone' Good job

  • Localin Geemale

    I wondered the guy had Euro-black socks on and then he spoke. Foreigner.

  • Ange Ritchie

    Loved it - i personally found the acting to be a hell of a lot better than some amateur movies on here!

  • Tyler Durden

    Brilliant idea, congrats ! Next time spend some money for a more professional sondscape, sorry you wasted this idea.

  • Raju

    Dont see the Movie "The Triangle" too much.....

  • michele piteo

    BRILLIANT. The whole idea of unzipping a tent and ,bizarrely, finding urself in another camping ground. Dang. Would never have imagined it . But ,suggested, seems so plausible SOMEHOW WOW. I keep noticing these short amateur sc-fis are out-doing Hollywood for originality. We need apps so Robert Fatt can cut out big brother and the middlemen. Produce their own and market direct to internet. The apps have to appear and Hollywood is floundering. Be patient guys. Love ur work

  • Tom Surman-Roberts

    "I can't be bothered to explain".

  • Hugo Nuñez

    I enjoyed watching your short film, the sequence seemed to me really interesting. I believe in time travelers and other dimensions. I like physics I was looking for this kinds of films.

  • Well possibly

    People, you have to keep watching past the credits!  There often times is a bit more of the film left! with this one!

  • Caden Rolland

    I bugs me to see people who produce nothing complain that this is crap. I'd take crap over nothing any day.

  • doomlist darkness

    the writer of this movie is not good in the head they made this film just because they couldn't sell any tent

  • Mitch Bookey

    who knew time travel would be such a pain in the ass

  • Matti Vilmunen

    So this guy is "warping" with his tent to catch the pre version of himself, right? Now what would happen if he would stay on the spot and wait for "himself"? Let's say that he will wait on that beach place with those cliffs. Now if he do wait, he wont be able tell "himself" to go inside the tent to "find out what is happening". This would mean that he didn´t go inside the tent in the first place, which he did.. Conclusion: No matter what he does, the results will be the same. He went and he didn't.

  • Todd

    This was not very good. Very poor acting.

  • Matthew5to8

    Interesting story. Cringey acting. Poor dialog annunciation (especially the very last words spoken).And it's enough already with touching the hair; it's more of an annoying nervous tick of the actor rather than a genuine idiosyncrasy of the character. Good idea on the ending (changing his mind on the jacket broke the temporal causality loop).2 stars

  • Sollard Surman

    If the old boy had a cell phone he'd have a bit of dialogue! And it would add detail.

  • Jampa Dhondup

    This is such an amateur film. I am saying this to push you further but be proud that you made a film that got 200k views!
