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.
Plot Point - At a big event in Times Square, something is going on - but what?
Fire In The Eye - Lightning strikes and misses the mark.
Gravity - Examination of a screen kiss.
