• "The New Herald" - A Science Fiction Short Film Project

    A Short Film project in Portland, OR by Erick Mertz

    These are the results of the storyboard I recently worked on for Erick Mertz.  The images of the storyboard are shown in a video to display the bigger picture.  Its now a kickstarter campaign, be sure to check it out:  "The New Herald"- A Science Fiction Short Film Project.

    The New Herald is a speculative fiction about the day when humankind's reliance on robotic limbs and organs reaches a nightmare ending.

    "The story takes place in a dystopian alternative history. The eight-to-nine minute movie opens on that first day when humankind across the world sees its increasing reliance on robotic limbs and organs reach a nightmare ending.

    Robot rebellions and burgeoning sentience are a part of science fiction lore and mythology. They were a large part of the wildly popular fiction of Issac Asimov whose "I, Robot" was reimagined recently by Hollywood...

    This movie describes a different kind of rebellion. One far more bleak and absurd than science-fiction has imagined. Instead of a full fledged robot rebellion like an angry C3PO or fed up Rosie from the Jetsons, this film tells about the terrible day when organs and limbs, mechanical devices installed and attached to our crumbling bodies decide to break free and seek their own fate."
