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.
