See the 'Interstellar'-Inspired Short Film 'EMIC' About People of Earth
"What do you like about living on Earth?" Google Play has just premiered a short 10-minute documentary called EMIC, made in promotion for/and inspired by the sci-fi movie Interstellar and the idea of one day leaving Earth. Google has been working with Paramount on promoting Christopher Nolan's big epic sci-fi movie all along, with virtual websites for screenings during its release last year. Now it's about to hit Blu-ray soon and is out on iTunes now, so Google is putting out its centerpiece video, the final "culmination" of everything they've worked together on. Similar to Life in a Day, it's a doc that explores what life is like on Earth, to create a time capsule-like video to save and take with us when we one day leave Earth. It's actually quite beautifully made from wonderful footage. "This film is intended to go wherever mankind goes next."
Here's a quick trailer for the short, titled Emic from David Brodie & Angus Wall, direct from YouTube:
Full synopsis: "An Interstellar x Google Play collaboration. Building off the themes of Interstellar, this short film weaves submissions from people around the world into a story celebrating the human experience on Earth." Directed by editor David Brodie (The Witness, Survivors), creative directed by Angus Wall (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) and curated by Christopher Nolan, the film "will serve as a time capsule that shows future generations what life on Earth was like, should we leave this planet." Emic is the culmination of a multi-month partnership between Google and Paramount surrounding the film Interstellar designed to help moviegoers connect to the film through immersive experiences. Interstellar is now available on iTunes/Amazon, and soon on on Blu-ray. This was a solid short that does capture the beauty of the world, and reminds of that other YouTube doc Life in a Day.
