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