Watch This: VFX Artist Dylan J. Nathan's 'Extropy - Speedhack' Short
Another cool sci-fi proof-of-concept (to follow The Leviathan). Dylan J. Nathan, a VFX / CGI artist, is looking to make the leap into filmmaking and has debuted his 2-minute short to show us what kind of world he wants to create. His new short is titled Speedhack, part of the Extropy sci-fi series he is developing. As described: "Speedhack is a high-octane journey through a near future city sprawl created entirely by Dylan J Nathan, Speedhack is a proof of concept scene from EXTROPY, a sci-fi feature film for the 21st century." Everything looks cool, I just hope there's a good story in here. Another site calls this a "FPS mashed-up with Akira and Tron" but it's just a sleek proof-of-concept for an intriguing sci-fi world.

Description from Vimeo: "When reality is augmented, DNA is synthetic and machines are sentient, what does it mean to be real? What is life? Speedhack is a high-octane journey through a near future city sprawl. Created by Dylan J Nathan, the short is a proof of concept scene from EXTROPY, a sci-fi feature film for the 21st century." This short was directed by Dylan J. Nathan (his website), featuring music by Jega, and visuals by Subvert. Dylan is a self-described "NeoFuturist Filmmaker" who worked with GMunk and Joseph Kosinski on Tron: Legacy and now he wants to make the leap into feature filmmaking. This project is one of his pitches - Extropy, a unique sci-fi trilogy. More info on this from The Creators Project. What is Extropy?
