Red-Band Trailer For the Crazy Looking Retro Sci-Fi Space Opera Blood MacHines

I've got a wild red-band trailer here for a badass looking sci-fi space opera called Blood Machine. The movie has a very retro and Heavy Metal vibe to it that I think you're gonna like. You're also going to want to pump up the volume for this thing!

Blood Machines is a 30-minute short film and sequel to the Carpenter Brut indie music video Turbo Killer, which you can watch below. It tells the story of "an A.I. escaping its spaceship then turning into a female ghost who will challenge two blade runners to a galactic chase." Here's the synopsis for Blood Machine:

Two space hunters are tracking down a machine trying to free itself. After taking it down, they witness a mystical phenomenon: the ghost of a young woman pulls itself out of the machine, as if the spaceship had a soul. Trying to understand the nature of this entity,

First Teaser Trailer for Synth Space Opera Indie Short 'Blood Machines'

"Prepare the ceremony, we've lost enough time." An nifty teaser trailer has launched for a new sci-fi space opera titled Blood Machines, an epic indie production from a French filmmaking duo that goes under the name "Seth Ickerman" (of Kaydara previously). Blood Machines is a 30-minute short film sequel to the Carpenter Brut indie music video "Turbo Killer" (also watchable below), which tells the story of "an A.I. escaping its spaceship then turning into a female ghost who will challenge two blade runners to an galactic chase." This looks massively ambitious even though it was made on a tiny budget by two young filmmakers, who were inspired by "the 80's, Synthwave and classical ScFy movies." Starring Elisa Lasowski, Anders Heinrichsen, and Christian Erickson, featuring synth music by Carpenter Brut, of course. Volume up. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Seth Ickerman's Blood Machines, direct from YouTube: And

BFI London Film Festival: ‘Gold Coast’ is a problematic colonialism drama

Gold Coast

Written by Daniel Dencik and Sara Isabella Jønsson Vedde

Directed by Daniel Dencik

Denmark, 2015

Stories about slavery can be a tricky proposition, especially if your story is from the Caucasian point of view, because there is a delicate balance to be struck when considering the protagonist’s actions and motivations. If the character doesn’t do enough to fight slavery, they can come off as too complicit in the act itself and their motivations can feel unjustified, while if they are portrayed as the slave’s sole liberator it reinforces the “white saviour” stereotype and robs the black characters of any agency. This is the problem inherent in Daniel Dencik’s Gold Coast which has its heart in the right place but which focuses too much on how slavery makes a white man feel bad while reducing the slave characters themselves to something resembling window dressing.
