Stephan Zlotescu's Incredible Sci-Fi Short 'True Skin' Debuts in Full
"It's all about the parts - and everyone wants them." Time to note that name - Stephan Zlotescu, also known as "H1". He's a talented filmmaker on the rise, about to break out in Hollywood, and his debut is this vibrant sci-fi short film which has already sparked a bidding war (via THR). The short is titled True Skin, a study of the future augmented world. We first featured the trailer for it back in March this year. The full six minute short film has debuted and it's a must-watch, for any/every sci-fi fan out there. It kind of reminds me of Blade Runner, but refreshed for 2012. Stunning work. Even Roger Ebert praised the short on his blog.

True Skin – A sci-fi short set in the not too distant future where augmentation is the way of life. For Kaye, still a natural, augmenting will help him keep pace in this now hyper-paced world. However, after acquiring an off-market prototype, Kaye quickly finds himself fighting not only for his own humanity, but something much larger. Shot entirely in Bangkok by cinematographer H1 and produced by Christopher Sewall, the short film is a glimpse into a much larger story in the works. This short is a N1ON production - you can find more info at n1on.com. I'm looking forward to seeing if this short becomes a full feature (it definitely will) and how Zlotescu's career progress from here. This is impressive sci-fi work with a good story behind it, too.
