You may have already seen a trailer for a short film called K3LOID in the past years, it’s now finished and it’s very impressive. Spanish-based J.J. Palomo directed the short and his visual FX shop BLR VFX spent over two years developing it with the intent of turning it into a feature.
Palomo isn’t a complete unknown to Hollywood, he and his team have collaborated with Carl Rinsch several times and worked on the director’s breakout short, The Gift. (And K3LOID‘s concept art was provided by Aaron Beck, the concept designer for Avatar and District 9).
In a not too distant future, societies of all countries come to rely on an intricate network of artificial intelligence devices designed to bring efficacy to man’s life. Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A. I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority.
As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers.
The world has become a cell for all man and women, who withstand and endure their lives, rather than living them. Machines might have found a solution.
From now on, you are set free.
Directed by JJ Palomo
