t’s no secret that I’m a huge Sci-Fi buff. All things science fiction related, just assume I’m into it. Call it a guilty pleasure, or just pure infatuation. Whatever the case, I’ve recently come to know of what promises to be an amazing indie sci-fi short film. Directed by Miguel de Olaso (a.k.a. Macgregor) & Bruno Zacharías in collaboration with Mike Hedge, Similo is a science fiction love story set in Antarctica, in the year 2064. The story of Similo deals with artificial beings designed to be the perfect lovers for the fortunate few during a time of drought and poverty.

Besides the beautiful camera work, and the imminent post production of complimentary visual effects, a lot of the music in the film promises to be extraordinary as well. And with artists like Max Richter, Hammock, and Helios set to score a lot of the film, I find myself heavily anticipating the release, (which I believe is set for sometime this year).

Also, thanks to Mike Hedge for his Similo Flickr feed. The screen shots are beautiful.

      Hey Mike,

      You’re welcome. I’m anxious to see Similo in its completion. Speaking of which, I did take note of the fundraising for the visual effects. We’ll do what we can to contribute and help spread the word. :)

      Yeah, I’m anxious to see Similo completed. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to see it in a theater. One can only hope.

      Wow, that’s exciting! Congratulations!

      I’m assuming you guys are going to try and get it in theaters? I hope you guys can get it in Portland, Oregon. Cinema 21 is a theater I would definitely recommend. They tend to support mostly indie films, so it stands a good chance of being shown.

    SIMILO is a 20 minute short. I’d love to show some of the other shorts that we have done and make a night of it! I’ll check out Cinema 21

    Know anyone who wants to be a Assoc producer? or an Executive Producer?

      Nice! I checked out Zach & Mac’s 18 Segundos short. It was brilliant. I’d love to see more. A night of short films sounds like good times. :)

      As far as associate and / or executive producers… I can’t think of anyone right off hand, but I’ll definitely spread the word.
