Worth Watching: Futuristic Action-Packed Sci-Fi Short 'Memorize'
"We've got a problem." Another great sci-fi action short film to catch, this one we promise is entertaining. From directors Eric Ramberg and Jimmy Eriksson comes a sci-fi story set in 2027 titled Memorize, in a world where everyone has "Memorize-chips" implanted that record everything in an attempt to cut down on crime. Watching this, it kind of has a Minority Report or Gattaca feeling, with modern day action like Dredd. One reader who sent this in references video games: "A dash of Max Payne, a dash of Syndicate. Also, oddly like a futuristic Law & Order or CSI." That's true too, but it's pretty damn good. Check this out!
The logline from Vimeo, and seen at the beginning of the film: In 2027, everyone is implanted with a chip - the Memorize-chip. It records everything you see, a new system to fight crime. One unit controls the system. The SSU - Special Surveillance Unit. Memorize was written and directed by Eric Ramberg and Jimmy Eriksson. Eriksson also stars in the film, along with a cast including Martina Lindberg and Håkan Hjelm. For more info, or to read the production blog where they have some cool concept art, visit this site. We'll probably be hearing & seeing a lot more from these guys soon. What did you think of Memorize?
