I’ll be honest with you. Last week I felt some rumblings in the Buddha Force in regards to a sci-fi short being lauded as a Blade Runner meets District 9 mashup, but I let you all down just like Luke did in Empire by not posting it. After reading today that True Skin has been picked up to be produced as a feature film by David Heyman (Harry Potter anyone) I had to give it a look. I’m glad I did because True Skin could be one of the most awesomely put together amateur sci-fi shorts of 2012, if not this century. It’s visual style and story are right up my alley, so I’m definitely on board with a feature film version.
I don’t see a full on District 9 connection, but I do see hints of Deus Ex: Human Revolution in there. Let’s just hope Hollywood doesn’t f*ck up what Stephan Zlotescu created. I highly suggest checking out True Skin after the break. Don’t be like me. It’ll only take up 6 minutes of your time. Give it a chance. You’ve been thinking these dudes love neon and blacklights…
