Sci-Fi Short: Doubles - What Would You Do If There Were 2 Of You?
Imagine what would happen if all of a sudden there were two of you. No, not twins, doubles. 

Jacob Motz's Doubles is a delightfully humorous take on collapsing universes, making the seemingly bizarre completely mundane. The protagonists all buy into the movie's surreal world; No one even bats an eye when the doubles show up. Instead, they focus on the complications as they affect their day-to-day lives, and not the bigger scientific picture. 

Warning: This short film contains some NSFW scenes.

The main character, played by Mike C. Nelson, is a lovable everyman, funny, cute, and a little pathetic, who starts seeing his double all over his house. But, his concerns are forgotten when he meets the double of his dream girl. As a well rounded, well written character, it's easy to relate to his frustrations, both romantic and otherwise.

The film was shot over the course of three days with a budget of a little over $18K. Motz is aiming to shoot another short this spring, and is looking to potentially move into some longer forms of entertainment.
