"As the deadliest natural disaster in US history strikes Galveston, Texas, taking between 6,000 and 12,000 lives, a mysterious televisual device projects images of unknown origin. Blake Williams' experimental 3-D film immerses us in the storm's aftermath, at every minute represented by remarkable and mysterious sights of one world nearing destruction as another emerges. A consideration of technology, cinema, and the medium's future, PROTOTYPE is equal parts dense and fleet – an unprecedented experience with no clear ancestor or likely successor." -- Grasshopper Film
