Synopsis:

Set in a dystopian London in 2054, the world has been ravaged by a virus that has killed billions and caused part of the remaining population to mutate into something other than human. BIOPUNK is a proof of concept short for a feature film. Starring Katie Sheridan as Resha, Charlie Jones as Edwin, Benjamin Tuttlebee as Kio, Robert Nairne as the Preacher and Kristian Nairn as Bob.

Personal Thoughts: 

Damn it, that video was too short. I enjoyed the visual cinematics and editing, and especially the story. I want more of this story and more of this kind post-apocalyptic telling of small-scale living and social commentary. While there is a hint of horror and action, I felt more engaged with the good and bad habits of humanity remaining constant, and the survivalist elements intact. I hope there will be a BIOPUNK full-length feature film for at least as a short-release indie title, with much of the cast here involved.
