Current project – Terminal

Posted: June 3, 2017 in Uncategorized

While I’ve been silent on the blog for a while I have still been busy… working towards submitting my PhD and developing some short films…Concept Poster

Terminal has emerged from my PhD research which caught the attention of director Cal O’Connell at RO Pictures.

Set in a utopian/dystopian future where all British citizens are modified by the state, the short follows a job centre employee, Kim, as they face a test: do they remain loyal to a flawed system or to a dangerous friend? In the following video I talk about the things that influenced me while writing the short film screenplay.

 

 

The aesthetic has been heavily influence by posthuman noir Anglo-American films and Japanese anime such as Blade Runner, Gattaca, Psycho Pass and Ex Machina. Below the designer and director talk about their design process…

 

 

At the moment the film is in the fundraising stage (https://www.gofundme.com/terminalscifi), with filming dates later this month. I’m really excited to be able to bring this screenplay to life.
