Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull's Sync

"I will find you." How about a bit of homemade sci-fi to start off the week. Today we're featuring the brand new teaser trailer for a project called Sync, the latest from VFX artist/filmmaker Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull. You may recognize that name as we've featured his space exploration "documentary" Project Kronos, which gave him a big boost in the industry and now he's off working on more. Sync is one of those other projects and it looks… just okay. To be totally honest, I'm not that impressed by this trailer at all. The footage looks very cheesy, blatantly dull and the CGI looks like glossy embellishment that doesn't add much. Take a look.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull's new project Sync, embedded directly from Vimeo:

Synopsis for the project direct from Vimeo: "Every 15 seconds, a computer, network, or mobile device is hacked by cyber-terrorists. To combat this problem, Syntek Industries has manufactured data couriers designed from advanced machine robotics. These couriers are known as SYNCS. Syncs are programmed to securely deliver data packages without interruption." Sync is a short film produced, written and directed by Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull (found @hazvfx), a visual effects artist turned filmmaker behind the Project Kronos short previously. For more info and to follow HaZ's work, find him on Vimeo or Twitter. Your thoughts?

    It looks okay? I don't really understand the premise, a Sync is a robot (looks like the anon costume from Tron Legacy) that delivers information for you because email hacking is too prevalent?
    • MattPeloquin
      It makes sense, the only way to ensure 100% that a message is securely delivered is to physically hand it to someone and then destroy it immediately after they read it.
      • OfficialJab
        I'm guessing the plot will involve that not being so 100%!
        • MattPeloquin
          Haha good point.

      When information that is really important has to be delivered, a guy gets on a plane and delivers it by hand. For the most part, flight delays, crashes or hijacks excepted, an international airport is no more than 18-hours away.
    Cool. Looks very Daft Punk/Tron Legacy. Dig.

  • Why?
    So kinda like Johnny Mnemonic? Looks good!

    The weakest part of this was the "look! Highland cattle" dialogue, and its equivalent in the visuals displayed by the SYNC :-)
  • Charles Smyth
    It didn't look any worse than an episode of Spooks.
