"C" Not a fanfilm, but a low-budget film with a different approach

A 15-minute sci-fi short film called "C" is viewable online at Vimeo (link below) and while it is the topic of another thread, its approach seemed to be something worth bringing up here for fan filmmakers.

"C" is about a mutiny on a spaceship, and while the merits of the story are debatable, what's of particular interest here is that the film was made largely in the old-school way: sans CGI effects, no greenscreen. The effects are in-camera and the sets are lighting are practical. Even the spaceship shots feature miniatures which are shot with an ingenious substitute for a motion-control rig.
