Synopsis: In 2078 something had stopped the motor of the world.
Decades later, civilization is still recovering from the global network crash. In this post-dystopian age, remnants of the old technologies remain, including cyborgs and man-machine interfaces. To regulate the disaffected remnants - colloquially known as 'Burnouts' - the Unified Cybernetics Foundation is formed to deal with post-human law enforcement.
It is now 2106, one hundred years in the present. When two Toronto police detectives are caught in the middle of a specific multiple murder case involving Burnouts, UCF sends one of their Marshals to assist.
And when the Foundation gets involved, nothing is ever simple.
The film is 29 minutes long, produced in Southern Ontario in 2006 by the Key Pixel Gathering of Filmmakers. We are a small group of friends who produce films, based in different locations around New York State and Southern Ontario. We released it last October. The DVD is available on Amazon, through CreateSpace.
The director opted not to promote through means of a traditional trailer, but rather a preview scene, which you can watch via this handy YouTube link.
Maybe some of you guys will get a kick out of it.
