Metroplex is an adrenaline packed SciFi short concept film full of action, suspense and a lot of bullets.
Set in 2050, the world is co-inhabited by humans, trolls, elves, dwarves, and dragons. Official governments no longer exist, instead laws are enforced by mega corporations through private security forces. Large sprawling cities called METROPLEX’S are divided into autonomous districts, each self governing and at odds with one another.
The film centres around Avin Sull, a hardened career criminal that leads a team of mercenaries on a heist to steal the CODEX, a mysterious virtual book buried deep inside the Disconnect, a digital world representing all that is left of the shattered remains of the internet and fiercely controlled by virtual and real armed guards. Betrayed by Yamada Kitashiano, a lawyer to the Yoko-gumi Yukuza clan, who initially gave them the job, they must now all fight to stay alive at all costs.
The 10 min live action short will act as a stand alone high octane piece of entertainment but also act as a proof of concept for a feature film that will hopefully spark interest in getting the project off the ground. It’s highly ambitious and that’s why we’re here on Kickstarter to prove that there is an audience out there that wants to see films like this get made.
