The Flying Man

The Flying Man


It looks like a man… A man has been seing flying in the city’s
downtown area this morning at 8:15 People are intrigued about how he does it. Some people say it could be some kind of illusion. All the experts who are analyzing these images say, quote: “This is clearly an extraordinary event” Police can’t provide any further details now
as they are afraid to put out misinformation. Some say he’s wearing a dark gray suit …others think it’s actually his skin. Officials have been ordered to bring helicopters back. Operators say it is too risky and dangerous in
case of an air collision over the populated city. Reports have been coming in that our flying man attacked a car this morning. Two people were found dead inside.
It seems as if he’s demonstrated super strength It’s very difficult for the police to respond to this kind of thing since it’s unclear exactly what we are dealing with, and if
there would be any other potential attack like this one. Over the last 3 days, fifteen other victims have been found dead in similar attacks. He is reckless and violent. The Federal government might intervene
and they ask the population to cooperate and stay home. Authorities released the first list of victims and finally confirmed the existence of a pattern. We believe that the flying man who’s spreading panic in our city
is some sort of a flying vigilante… …due to the fact that most of his victims have extensive criminal records. That could be a relief for the good citizen and an alert to the outlaw. But the question remains: Who’s law is this ruthless vigilante applying? The search is still on for a man who was apparently abducted last night. After surviving a deadly attack he was taken away by the vigilante, hours later, said witnesses. Chances are that he might still be alive. Police are led to believe this is how the vigilante extracts information… for potential leads since the man is assumed
to be part of a larger criminal organization. I was listening to that, thanks. Did you hear me? I’d rather not, could you pull over here, I’m hungry. There’s no time. We have time. I gotta eat something or my heartbrun will act up, ok? Fine. Hi, can I take your order? Do you guys have gluten free selections? No, we have nothing gluten free. I want the burguer without the bum, is that possible? It’ll get soggy in the bag.
Ok, That’s better than nothing… …and anything lactose free like soy or almond milk? How do you think he knows? Who are you talking about? The flying guy. How do you think he knows who to chose, who deserves it? I don’t know, you’re worrying too much,
he’s only one guy, he can’t catch everyone I don’t Know, Rob. I just think that we should be more careful… … you know, just take the proper precautions Mike, please, you taking this too seriously.
The media is blowing this way out of proportion. He’s already got what? 5 guys? 35? 35. Yeah, 35 and that is the last week. Holy… you know? you gotta stop following this shit. Or it’ll make you anxious… …we are not hurting anyone..
No? Take it easy Mike, alright?
Once we’re done, you take the money… go look after your family, plant your flowers or
whatever the hell you want to do. Let’s focus here ok? We are just about to open the lines to the listeners … and actualy just a question I wanna ask everybody listening: What do you think about having a super vigilante in the city? I think he’s taking care of us, he’s doing the work the cops can’t do,
I’m not worried Police will never have control over this vigilante. We’re living in a new time and I’m glad I’m a good citizen. I’m not in favor of the deaths, he could just bring them to jail… 8:00 we blink the headlights twice and wait for the signal. Rob, I don’t feel good about this man, something is off I do. It’ll be over very fast. Yeah? How do you know? I don’t, relax. What are you doing?
What the hell are you doing man, Rob? Jesus Christ, I can’t take a leak no more? Did you hear that? Of course I did, just keep an eye out for anything suspicious, alright? Mike? Open up the trunk. We are not in a war here, but unfortunately we are not in control anymore…. What the hell is that? It was supposed to be peaceful, remember? Of course. Just a piece of mind. …many share the opinion that capital punishment isn’t a deterrent to crime… 8 o’clock, flash the lights. Man, I don’t like this. I say, we just get out of here. For Christ’s sake, do you wanna do this or not? Let’s do it your way. Now what? They’re here So what now?
We wait. For what? That’s the plan, stop asking. Ok, they are leaving. Are we supposed to follow them? I think so.
You think? You think so? Follow them, yes. Just drive. Did you hear that?
Heard what? The noise stopped. What the hell is that?
He wants to say something, get closer. I’m not doing this. We’re getting off in the next exit ok?
I’m done. Jesus Christ! Holy Shit! What’s that?
Drive, it’s him! Oh God. Look out! We received information of another vigilante attack on the Highway 30… Three men have been found dead trapped in their vehicle… One body identified as Robert Costelo, a former cop investigated for weapon trafficking… The survivor is unconscious but doctors say he has no serious injuries. Authorities will interrogate the man upon his recovery. Was he missed by the vigilante or spared? Is this the justice we want after centuries of law development and human rights? What is, after all, being a good citizen? if this being acts in absentia of our institutions, have we failed as a society? Maybe. But history has shown that any form of tyranny cannot prevail. How many more family members will lose their loved ones executed without fair judgement? Those who call him “hero” today, may consider him “enemy” tomorrow.

  1. Thank you for your continued support throughout the years, it makes it all worth it. I'm always thrilled to read new comments and your feedback has been valuable to me as I continue to work on adapting this to the big screen. It's only alive because of YOU. Hopefully you'll see The Flying Man on theaters soon enough! Meanwhile you can always check my channel for other shorts.

  2. The bug eyes fat man is a crappy actor. He try's to play a tough guy boss type. It's obvious he's a butter soft pussy in real life. Make better selections for actors in the beginning. This short is a neat concept, and it would be a cool full length movie if cast right. Make it as well produced as Hancock, but DO NOT use established Hollywood actors. Find and develop new actors, there are tons of great people who could be oscar winners if given the chance vs paying millions to people like Robert Downey JR, and Gwyneth Kate Paltrow. You can do it, you folks have the eye for making the shots, the lighting is good, sound is good, Story is good. Talent selection Sucked.

  3. came here thinking it was a movie trailer, stayed till the end…i knew immideately what it was but it was too good to stop

  4. Come on! The public wants more. I want more. I was mesmerized for 9 min. Someone out there must know someone thats a exec. at Netflixs. Get this clip to them. I will take care of itself from there!

  5. I am very upset with you! I thought I was going to watch a preview but instead I totally got into this! It was amazing! I came to see some previews to see what I may watch today and wound up subscribing to your channel and enjoying your other films. Cant wait to see more from your team.

  6. I once wrote a short story for myself based on a similar type of occurrence. This was MUCH better than I was able to achieve. I hope to see more!

  7. It's been well over 6 years and no studio has picked up on this? WTF? I've never gotten tired of re-watching this.

  8. It is unfair to post this stuff. I won't survive without more. Does this mean I have to wait 6 years for a full movie? What if I don't have 6 years??

  9. that was a teaser! what happens? argggggghhhhhhhh so good! You should try make a series out of it if you can't make a movie! So great! well done!

  10. Awesome trailor .. but 6 or 7 year until the movie might be a little long. Nicely done.. really would like to see more. Great story line. Superman with balls of steel.

  11. If I had those powers, I would take out the most evil of them all…the Federal government. I would then restore America back to its constitutional roots.

  12. That was incredible. I accidentally came across this video. And was pleasantly surprised! Please make More videos like this my friend!

  13. Nicely done and the message is spot on. No matter how good the deed, the media will vilify anyone operating outside of the establishment's system, and of course the establishment fears repercussions for their own wrong doings as well so they must color the nondescript flying gray person as something bad or evil.

  14. Braaaaahhhhh. Man o man, what can i say, but wow. I am a huge fan of these types of movies and would LOVE to see this in theaters. I subscribed!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE I will be able to see more of this!!!! OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! Thank you and much continued success!!!

  15. Wow, very great short film. I'm a unknown writer, I have no works to date. However I would like to work with you guys if you need help with scripts. There's so many different ways you can go with the plot. Why isnt there a movie deal yet ?

  16. Seriously, wh6bis this not a movie? And how come I only found it in 2019?

    You guys need to make this a movie or series.

  17. I see this was six years ago. I like this. I look forward to seeing more of these shorts or maybe a little longer. The characters look to have fullness, with a back story. I am eager to see how this story develops. Thank you for making something worth watching.

  18. Why did it take me 6 years to happen on this great short?

    You're a great storyteller. The short should be developed into a full length movie.

  19. I got to see this after watching a trailer. Thought this was a trailer as well. Saw it for the first time now (Oct '19) .Am really surprised this is not a scene from a big screen/mainstream movie and it is actually 6 years old. It is really good and has so much quality . Actors are very good too. Lots of potential ….Hate not knowing the who, why, how and what happens next . A real cliffhanger!!!! Thank you for the contribution. All the very best. Hope you realise the opportuniy and make it a humongous success. See u at the big screen really soon. Regards.

  20. I definitely liked it! However, IF this were to actually become a full feature film or a TV series, there needs to be better acting. Also, if it's going to become a movie, then it should be rated-R. If it's going to be a TV series, then it should be on FX. That network usually has the better shows, with AMC coming in second. Just my opinion.

  21. I thought this was a trailer for an upcoming movie and then realized it was one of those "short films". It would be an epic full length feature movie if they ever took it in that direction.

  22. Just popped up in my feed oct 2019. I was pumped because originally I thought this was a trailer for a full length movie. My excitement turned into sadness when I realized that this was just a short film….. It is a great short film tho

  23. This just randomly came up and I watched the whole thing. I'm pretty disappointed that this isn't an actual movie or series…. it was cool.

  24. Oh dude get back to work and finish this. I really into it. I mean i screen casted it made pop and everything. Then the credits came on. This woukd have been a hit movie. Great job. Nkw back to work

  25. The tension held well throughout the drive… I couldn't relax as we were taken slowly and naturally through all the telltale tropes that prick our senses and foreshadow the action. It is impossible for the body to stay 'prepared' that long. Masterful work.

    IMHO the worst that could happen is that hollywood take up this work. It needs an uncompromising and independent treatment.
