“the machine” combines HD video with machinima to tell a futuristic story set in a desolate Newfoundland city. This “cyberpunk fairytale” stars Melanie Caines and Liz Solo with special appearances by Lutius Elijah Whalen, Jeannie Harris. Zoe Elizabeth Howard and Fau Ferdinand (avatar of artist Yael Gilks). Gorgeous Production Design by Barry Newhook and Yael Gilks with a amazing score featuring the music of Tom Lee with other soundscore by Kevin MacLeod, Sam Hall and Liz Solo.
The piece masterfully merges the real and the virtual and draws the viewer into a future world where art has been outlawed – powerful performances and mesmerizing machinima sequences – watch for it!
The World premiere screening took place at the 2nd TrixXxieFest at the LSPU Hall in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Friday June 24, 2017. Odyssey is proud to be a part of this project and we wish all involved great success as the film now heads to the festival circuit.
