Since deciding to start regularly featuring some of the short scifi films which appeal to us, we wanted the first to be something a little bit unconventional – and “Dr. Easy” fits that bill. The Warp Films production, which is a prologue for a forthcoming film called “The Red Men”, is directed by the three artists who operate under the name “Shynola”. The group have worked in Television and Film since 1999 and made music videos for artists including Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Blur and How to Destroy Angels. Enjoy.
