Tesseract - Short Film

This was a test to try to make something for cheap with all practical effects in camera, building/designing/lighting all the sets and props ourselves. Taking cues from books like Neuromancer and early Ridley Scott films, Eduardo Pena and I set out to explore what was possible on a limited budget (under $5k). While flawed/unfinished, i hope you guys find it somewhat interesting.

2052, technology has merged with mankind at an exponential rate changing the way we see and interact with the world. The more integrated the technology the more it is used as a form of control which governments, corporations and crime syndicates take advantage of to its fullest. Tesseract is the story of a man on the run from his past, in a world where no one forgets.

Below you will see a series of still frames from the transfer sequence in the short as the old man transfers his mind into a black market 3D printed body in future Hong Kong.
