Hello Poppers and welcome back to Movie Mondays. This Monday I found this gem on the old web, well YouTube actually and it is a great piece. Written and directed by Eric Ramberg and Jimmy Eriksson this very well done short film takes place in the future and mankind has been implanted with chips. The Memorize chip records everything you see and is used to fight crime. A special group called the SSU – Special Surveillance Unit controls the system.
I loved this piece. The effects were awesome. The production crew should be applied for making such a beautiful piece on according to the directors note, “a shoe string budget”
So sit back. Get a drink and popcorn if you like and show this piece some love.
Ok boys and girls I found this other piece of amazing, excellent work done by Damian Nenow, polish director. Also his amazing crew at Platigue Image. If you can watch this on your TV then do it. It is some much more powerful on a bigger screen.
