Elliott Serrano, for Redeye
January 3, 2013
When you ask sci-fi geeks about what their favorite time-travel stories are, two series stand out. First you have the American-made Back to the Future movies, featuring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown and their time-traveling Delorean. Then you have Doctor Who, the British television series that features Matt Smith as the Doctor, Karen Gillan as Amy Pond and Arthur Darvill as Rory Williams in the TARDIS - a blue Police Box that can travel through time and space.
I am a fan of both and you can imagine my delight when I found this animated short by James Parr! This mini-feature is chock-full of so many ideas that you could conceivably create an entire series from it. When asked if he could make a "Blink to the Future" Trilogy on Youtube, Parr responded "Very likely. But only after we top a few million views. (Spread the word!)"
So that's what I'm doing. :)
What do you think? Would you like to see more of "Blink to the Future"?
