In space, nobody can hear you be a complete buffoon — unless you’re speaking to them directly about how, exactly, you painted the wrong number on the side of your own ship.

That’s what happens in Floaters, a short sci-fi comedy from Karl Poyzer and Joseph Roberts. Posted on Dust, Floaters features the very droll voices of Rachel Stubbings, Daniel Hoffmann-Gill, and Jake Yapp, and manages to build a complete story in four minutes without ever going inside either spaceship.
