"She Said You Could Get Rid Of It ..."

, Founder and Editor

Back in late October I received an email from a young film maker by the name of David James Fernandes.  "Check out my website", he said, "I've got a bunch of stills on there from a film I'm finishing up."  I get this basic email thirty or forty times a week, on average, but the stills I found on Fernandes' site were miles above most of what people send.  So I wrote him back and commented on the fact that he lives right around the corner from me and asked how close things were to be done.  Really close.  So close, in fact, that I chose not to run the stills at all, explaining that "A trailer will get the job done a whole lot better."

Good choice.

The film is Re-Wire, the trailer is done and it's fantastic.  Starring Brandon McGibbon - soon to be quite well known thanks to a significant role in Vencenzo Natali's Splice - as a young man crippled by fear and hoping to have it removed via a clandestine brain re-wiring procedure, Fernandes proves again here that the future of intelligent science fiction is with the little indies, not the big studios.  The only down side to this at all is that it's only fourteen minutes long.  Check the trailer below.

    Is this a feature or a short?

    With all the fade to black edits I'm not at all into the way this trailer is cut; however, the set design (more analog, less digital) and the conviction these actors seem to be putting into their lines wins me over. Could be a winner.

    Wow. That's some damn good acting and cinematography.
