True Skin 5 min short finally released!

http://trueskinfilm.com/

Getting rave reviews. The stills on the page are awesome.

Already talking to a studio to bring it to a feature length film as well as another film.

Can't view vids at work. I assume it's science fiction? Are you in the movie?

Watched it earlier today. That was really cool, I just hope they don't ruin it when/if it does become a full length movie.

I liked it. I'll have to keep an eye on this... It'd be nice if cyberpunk were to make a real resurgence in film.

It's not cyberpunk per se, it's evolved beyond that.

Elaborate. I feel this short is 100% a throwback to classic cyberpunk.

It definitely has the elements of traditional cyberpunk, but cyberpunk now has to be classified as a sub-genre transhumanist/singularity writing in SF, and the commentary is on another level. It's no longer enough to simply say these are rebels, hackers, etc fighting corporate oppression, gov'ts, or for what's theirs the context is evolution itself, and True Skin feels like it has the transition period down visually better than any movie I've seen.
