The student film, The Hun: World War I Short Film was recommended to me on YouTube. I am guessing because of my interest in the series, The Great War.

Regardless of what caused the algorithm to suggest this film, I am glad it did. Writer and Director Tyler Mendelson reached out to Kickstarter for funding and created the finished project with the $21,600 collected. My first impulse is to say, what a great job he did with that budget… I think that undersells the film however.

In this short (12 minute) film, Mendelson tells an excellent tale. Sure, because of the budget you have to overlook a couple anachronisms but I think he did a great job regardless.

When you have a few minutes, give it a look:
