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?

It's too bad filmmakers with this sort of ambition and talent don't seek original music.

Plus that was a great video. Crisp, cool action and motion graphics.

Now that features some really wooden acting.

Great effects, but why didn't he just take the guy in for questioning at the end? He'd killed everyone else without hesitation and surely deleting memories is as good as guilt?

Great visuals....terrible everything else.

It's 2027 and WTC1 still hasn't been completed? Well that sucks.

Terrible, fancy for nothing. Typical and no story. Just smoke and mirrors.

This movie demonstrates how easy it is for amatuers to make professional looking movies...now if only the execution was better

I loved how the explosion spiraled up the staircase, that was a really nice detail.

Give the lead cop some personality and they'd quadruple the entertainment value.

lol at the people playing pool on the floor above in an abandoned trashed building.

He should have killed the perp and erased it from his own memory

I liked very much. It is another guerrila style production with great results if you consider that is basically a backyard film with non actors.
