The Hollywood Reporter and Vimeo have posted a short film called “True Skin”. The film is directed by Stephan Zlotescu and set in a not too distant future where humans are no longer completely organic. 

Normally we don’t post short films or fan films here at Mania, but this one is worth the watch. 

Cyber-Punk author William Gibson has already come out in praise of the short film. As he should because Zlotescu creates a world that Gibson has described in several of his books. 

The visuals here are amazing despite the story itself being fairly brief. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter “Zlotescu is a FX guru who’s worked on videos for Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj. With his FX background, he was able to make the short of very little, overseeing the FX work himself. He shot it on location in Bangkok with his frequent collaborators, Chris Sewall, and a man by the name of H1, who acted as producer and cinematographer, respectively” (read the full story here).
