Project Arbiter is an indie film from Michael Chance. I’ve seen other works by Michael Chance back in an indie movie festival in San Jose, CA back in December of 2009 called The Reason. The Reason is a 14-minute film that makes you want more than what you’ve got. Michael Chance is back at it enticing us with more of his work.

As the Project Arbiter website puts it about the film:

“Project Arbiter is a sci-fi espionage story that demonstrates how a small quiet victory tips the balance of power and foretells the outcome of World War II.”

During the height of WWII in 1943, an experimental O.S.S. unit, code named Project Arbiter, infiltrates a mysterious villa on the Polish border and uncovers the secrets within. A prototype soldier’s battle suit

The preview of the short film was once referred to as “The Alternate History of Gundam in WWII” over on io9. It’s not set in space, it’s not giant robots, however, it is about a solitary soldier wielding a single prototype battlefield suit that allows him to turn invisible for brief periods of time.

When I was shown the movie trailer for Project Arbiter, I immediately was captured by Chance’s imagination once again and started wondering when I’ll be seeing the film. But alas, it’s under production and we must wait a bit longer, when they go into production in May, 2010. It will be a 25-minute indie short film, that will no doubt, win festival awards.

In the meantime, check out the Project Arbiter preview, check out the website and enjoy the possibilities.
