In a dystopian Los Angeles future, retirement engineer John Kampff hunts down suspected Replicant Andy Smith. As John soon learns, Replicant detection is nearly impossible without specialist equipment.
In a dystopian Los Angeles future, replicants or genetically engineered humanoids are created to work forced labour on off-world colonies. The latest generation, the Nexus 3 series, begins to display erratic and violent behaviour. Replicants were not designed to experience complex emotions or develop long-term memories. In the wake of corporate scandals of the previous decade, the Tyrell Corporation quietly attempts to remove Nexus 3 from circulation. John Kampff (Sean Cameron Michael), a senior engineer, heads up the Tyrell Retirement Division. With the primary objectives, detect and remove Replicants, John has suspected Nexus 3 Andy Smith (Russel Savadier) firmly in his sights. As John soon learns, Replicant detection is nearly impossible without specialist equipment. The Voight-Kampff, a polygraph-like machine used by retirement engineers to help in the testing of an individual to learn if they are a replicant, is a distant thought in John Kampff's mind.Written by

I found this short by accident while searching for documentaries about the original Blade Runner movie. At first I didn't believed this would be something worth seeing, but I was bored so I let it play. The first minute catches me off guard, the visuals, the music, the cinematography, they all strike a cord. It reminded me so much of the original, something no fan made movie has ever done. So, I continued to watch it, and then, piece by piece I start to get mesmerized by it the same way I got when I saw the original Blade Runner movie. Once it ended, I replayed it over and over and over again until this became my favorite short movie ever made, just like how Blade Runner is my all time favorite.
This short is non-cannon to the Blade Runner universe, but for me... it is. That's how good it was. Check it out, you won't regret it.
