So there're threads about photos, threads about bands and drawing, but I don't see very many threads on films that we're all working on. I thought I'd pop over and post a trailer for a short that I'm submitting to festivals this year. I'd love to post the whole thing, because it is finished, but it would really compromise my chances of getting programmed into a festival if I did. Anyway, here's the synopsis of the project:
The New Republic of Alberta flourishes after separating from Canada during the recession in 2010, but things take a dark turn when the government begins reintroducing eugenics policies from Alberta's past. Gina Phillips and Mark Robson star in Alex Mitchell's ambitious blend of philosophy and speculative fiction as two ordinary citizens who's lives are deeply affected by the Department of Fertility and Reproductive Rights.
As a technical aside, this was shot on a DVX-100b but I uploaded a 720p master to make the Youtube version look as good as it could. Please rate it and let me know what you guys think!
