I stumbled recently onto a new on-line Sci-Fi series called H+. H+ is “a groundbreaking new series by acclaimed producer Bryan Singer, H+: The Digital Series takes viewers on a journey into an apocalyptic future where technology has begun to spiral out of control… a future where the world’s population has retired its cell phones and laptops in favor of a stunning new device by Hplus Nano Teoranta, an innovative technology company that has found a way to connect the Internet to the human mind 24 hours a day.“
How would you feel having an implant in lieu of other technology and capable of being connected to the Internet 24/7?
Our spotlight focuses on one Billy Boyd. Billy has been active since 1996 but especially busy since 2001′s release of the first Lord of the Rings movies. Currently, he has a hilarous low budget sci-fi horror-comedy flick called Space Milkshake that is in post production. Being a fan of camp and low budget films, I am eager to see what Space Milkshake has to offer. Hopefully, the best gags are not all in the trailer, which seems to be the trend these days. However, it looks funny.
Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. Cosmatos was born in Rome in 1974 to the late Greek movie director (George Cosmatos) and a Swedish experimental artist mother. He spent his early formative years traveling all over the globe before settling in Canada. In 1981, the family lived for a year in Mexico where exposure to the strange local interpretations of American pop culture had a profound and lasting effect on his creative life. Growing up in the isolated suburbs of Vancouver Island during the 80s, he obsessed over the minutiae of heavy metal, fantasy art, and science fiction horror films, which he still does to this day. He then immersed himself in the underground art and music scenes making short films, album covers and music videos with a burgeoning group of influential and groundbreaking artists. Panos currently lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia.
I hope everyone isn’t sick of my Prometheus posts yet because the trailers just keep coming and they are epic. The strange part of it all is despite having a vast array of information being shoved at us that could potentially overload us and tone down our anticipation, it’s having the exact opposite effect on me. I am highly anticipating this film because I know it’s going to be visually amazing and scare the crap out of me! Alien and Aliens still scare me effectively today.
I believe Alien and Aliens to represent an effective metaphor for the potential peril of the lack of humility, the naivety, and the overconfidence of humankind. We are bold, invasive species, but we ignore many things when striking out to discover the unknown. We think we can just blatantly conquer everything. Confidence and diligence are useful traits, but we get into trouble so fast when we ignore and often overlook the consequences. Hence, history has a way of repeating itself. Ok, I am on a soapbox but this is exactly WHY WHY I love this kind of film it get’s the noodle going and it’s philosophical sustenance.
Enough of me chattering on and on and on – here’s the trailer.
