In 2034 conflicts across the globe stretch NATO to their limit. A program is sanctioned to turn criminals serving life sentences into mind-altered and controlled Battle Drones for the purpose of warfare.
But in the heat of battle, one of their Drones regains his self-awareness. He now has a far greater fight on his hands: to escape his own forces and maintain his humanity.
Did that catch your eye? Want to know more about the film? Well, This film hasn’t been made yet and it needs your help.
The film is being crowdfunded, in stages, with the current phase being the filming of a key battle scene. They are trying to raise, the quite moderate figure of, £5,000 to make this scene happen.
Just head over to Indiegogo and drop the film a “couple of quid“. Every pound will make a difference. As of writing [ 21Dec2014 ] the campaign has another 17 days to run.
Still not sure? Just click play and watch the great teaser trailer below.
The film, We Are Soldier, is helmed, and written, by Lee Asquith-Coe as well as a skilled, committed team including VFX supervisor Nick Tregenza who has worked on major productions like The Monuments Men, Hercules and Jupiter Ascending. Not only that, We Are Soldier will be helping to foster and grow new talent: with the University of Bradford’s Visual Effects Production Department providing £750,000 worth of VFX software, hardware and personnel, all of the CGI, 3D animation and 2D compositing completed by students on We Are Soldier will go towards their final degree.
And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, the We Are Soldier team have created a free game app for mobile phones.
It’s available for both iOS [link now dead] and Android [link now dead] phones and is very reminiscent of some of the games that I played in the arcades in the 80s.
Not only that, they have also released a track on iTunes for [link now dead]. It’s only 79p.
We Are Soldier has a dedicated, skilled and passionate team behind it that are looking forward to bringing something truly special to the screen.
