Hewes Pictures is the only short film distributor in the US. The company’s acquired content often stars renowned actors and is widely accessible on various platforms including Amazon.

Hewes Pictures will be releasing an anthology of Sci-Fi short films called A.I. Tales this June 2018. A.I. Tales will be streaming as well on Amazon, so if you don’t live near Boston at Somerville Theater where A.I. Tales will be premiering, you’ll have a chance to watch it on the small screen.

The collection of shorts include SEED by Nelson Lee, IN/FINITE by Kristen Hilkert, PHOENIX 9 by Amir Reichart, REDUX by Vitaly Verlov and JULIET by Marc-Henri Boulier.

First Impressions

From Press Release:

The film is made up of futuristic, high concept stories about artificial intelligence. Whether it’s love found in time of over-population or exploration of the unknown and space-travel, “A.I. Tales” has a bit of something for every fan of the genre. Altogether, these stories provide a one-of-a-kind experience and a unique view of the near future.

I have the pleasure to show you for the first time the trailer of two shorts included in A.I. Tales which are the ones from Seed and Redux.


In a future where draconian laws are enforced to combat over-population, Nathan’s 40th birthday will be his last. Amidst a parade of family and friends saying their goodbyes, an old lover emerges from his past. In the end, how much will he be willing to sacrifice in order to get back the life that was lost?


As seen in the trailer for this short film directed by Nelson Lee, « The World’s population has reached catastrophic levels, selective culling became a law in response ». The idea for this short blew me away and how the trailer is structured made it even more special. You meet various characters and nature in different situations without dialogue. The music works beautifully with amazing shots selected with care and precision. The soundtrack reminded me of Decoder Ring’s Somersault which, for me, is one of the most beautiful pieces in indie filmmaking. The mixture of dread and silence makes this short a must-see.DecayMag, A.I. Tales, Hewes Pictures


A scientist must send a warning message through time before he gets killed by an assault team.


The teaser trailer for Redux shares the same idea of Seed on the mystery level. On this one, nothing is written on the screen and you can hear a gunshot and a male protagonist mourning the loss of someone he knew. The cinematography on this one is pretty good as well and it definitely has my attention. Redux is written and directed by Vitaly Verlov.DecayMag, A.I. Tales, Hewes Pictures

In Conclusion

From both trailers and from all the synopsis I read on about the other shorts, I can assume that A.I. Tales is an anthology worth seeing. I hope the movie lives to its hype by its trailers, its delicate cinematography, and body of work. If you’re near Boston be sure to check it out until the 14th of June. If you’re not, like myself, I hope to catch it on Amazon soon.
