Just Ella

"Just Ella" posits a future overrun by gibbering monstrosities.

Ella takes refuge in "the Ossington Safehouse, a collectively-run space dedicated to human sovereignty." But despite doing the assigned tasks on the chore list, the Safehouse isn't safe -- the terrors outside are nothing compared to those within.

Contains perhaps the first cinematic example of autocomplete used for a dramatic reveal.

    If anyone know this, it's one of your blog readers:

    Some time in the 90s or early 00s I saw a short film whose plot was primarily people being followed around by large dancing rocks. Kind of like the Goblin Valley State Park scene in Galaxy Quest, but it made less sense.

    I have tried to find it a few times since then, and nothing. Anybody?

      I know the film you mean, but my Googling isn't throwing anything up, sorry - that's going to bug me now :P

        It's possible that it was on the SciFi show "Exposure". Wikipedia has a list of the films that were on it, but the article was deleted. Fortunately I can read deleted articles.

        The trouble is that it's over a hundred short films, and googling the ones with reasonable sounding titles has come up with nothing. I'll have to go through them all some time.

      The closest thing I could find in my semantic web is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe1_NdPw9ms ... although it's newer than you said and they're not really rocks, but maybe.
