1000 Years of Darkness
Film (short) by Nathan Maas (Comedy) Writer, Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Producer, Sound department, Visual effects 1000 Years of Darkness is based on a quote by Chuck Norris 'If Obama is re-elected it will usher in a 1000 Years of Darkness'. It pokes fun at ultra conservative fears of a democratic president but can also be fun for people on both sides of the aisle. Written by Anonymous
