Future Scifi film IRON CLOUD has released a short trailer that looks promising. My first impression is that the [easyazon_link asin=”0470922427″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”seriou03-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]VFX[/easyazon_link], directing and casting are impressive. It is hard to tell from this short trailer how good the acting will be.
Hopefully they will release a longer trailer soon that will give us a better grasp of the story and the acting.
The shot of the futuristic city gives me hope for the worldbuilding in IRON CLOUD but I need to see more to be certain.
One shot that I found interesting was the personal forcefield that emerges when one actor tries to punch another. This is a concept that holds some potential in the near future through the use of nanotechnology.
Imagine a swarm of billions of nanobots surrounding you. Nothing could penetrate this layer. These nanobots could be made of a transparent material so you could see the threat and take action. I’m also thinking spidersilk would be involved. Spiderslik is stronger than steel in density and could conduct energy more efficiently.
Electrified spidersilk force field generating wearable smartsuits. Ok…that would be Spiderman. Sort of.
SERIOUS WONDER POTENTIAL
According to the VIMEO Page:
“The sci-fi drama ‘Iron Cloud’ tells the story of two brothers living in the eastern totalitarian country. Life for them takes a turn for the worse after the younger brother gets beaten during an interrogation and the older one, with his wife and daughter, are brutally intimidated by police.
The boy hatches a plan of escape to an unnamed, free, technologically advanced neighbouring country. The technocratic West will welcome the immigrants with open arms and give them shelter, but not exactly in a way they have always expected.
Their new home, apparently a perfect place to live, will soon turn out to be only a new version of prison people build for one another.”
