'Hoverboard'- A Short Film Based On Back To Future II...


The thing I love about the Internet the most is the way things are spread around. I mean, you find all sorts of cool tidbits and fun stuff online in the darnedest places. Apparently PBS (the Public Broadcasting System, the free TV channel that has made Sesame Street & Dowton Abbey a household name) is running an online short film festival. Now I would have never known that, and now I am exposed to 25 really cool looking short films that I would have never been exposed to. I for one will sure be busy over the next few days, but what better way to start off the process than by watching the short that revolves around Back To The Future II? 'Hoverboard' is a brilliant 6 minute short film about a little girl who is trying her best to recreate Marty McFly's famous hoverboard from BTTF II. When a few of her attempts at creating the technology fail, she turns to her teddy bear companion and some ingenuity to get the job done. An excellent snapshot & love letter to a film that has inspired a lot of love from fans throughout the years. Very well done indeed.
