What do you want to see?
ID Fight Choreographer Ronin Traynor teamed up once more with writer Susan E. Clarke (Primary Faction / Chronicles of Syntax) for another sci-fi adventure. RX Terra was the culmination of a course with BFI Future film, making a short film from scratch in 2 weeks. That’s written, filmed and edited including special effects and soundtrack composition! 'RX Terra' has been heralded as "The best thing to come from BFI Future Film" since the course began.
It premiered at the National Film Theatre and has since been shown again there to inspire young filmmakers.
The year is 2020 and Britain is the new 3rd world. In order to live day-to-day the company Pineapple has released a new product. iGazer is the name of a special pair of highly sought after sunglasses, which creates a virtual reality for the wearer, removing the dystopian truth and replacing it with your heart's desire. Lead (Chris Munns) is a regular guy with a normal 9-5 desk job. Suffering from OCD he can barely function without his iGazer spex, and it becomes very obvious what he desires above everything else - but falling in love in this world can be the most dangerous thing you could do.
