Watch This: Sleek Cyberpunk Teaser for Indie Film Frame 137
You gotta check this out! From ours friends at SlashFilm comes a teaser trailer for a new independent film called Frame 137, written and directed by Judd Tilyard. It's a sci-fi action film based on the work of James O'Barr, creator of The Crow, and made with his permission. It's kind of a punk, neo-noir, action flick and it looks interesting, to say the least. The craziest part is it's shot on the RED camera using a Lomo Anamorphic Lens which makes it look like it was shot Cinemascope, so it's extremely wide. It's based on a comic that first appeared in Dark Horse Presents and was expanded into a short before Tilyard turned it into a feature film.

Frame 137 is written & directed by Australian filmmaker Judd Tilyard, of numerous short films but this is his first feature-length production. Sam Ransom, the 10-year-old boy who plays Jonny Z, the film's hero, performed all his own stunts including the fire breathing and wire-work, some of which we got to see in this teaser. We're not sure when this is going to be released or if they're planning to premiere it at some festivals, but we'll definitely be following. Looks cool enough, like it could be a badass indie that just blows us away. I'm sort of reminded of The Matrix, Road Warrior and Equilibrium all at once watching this. Thoughts?
