Black Box Shorts

Black Box Shorts


Reviewed by: Andrew Robertson

In common usage a Black Box is going to be one of two things: A device designed to help investigators find out what happened after something has gone wrong, or the unknown gap between a given input and output.

For the most part, the shorts in the Black Box programme are the latter, but sadly some are far closer to the remnants of a disaster.
