STUDENT SHORT FILM - DARKTOPIA 2022

"In the near future, virtual reality gaming has had a dramatic effect on the social interactions of young people. For many young men like Miles it is easier to find companionship and love online. The return of an old school crush to Miles’ reality makes him question how real a virtual fantasy can be."

our story

Film is not just entertainment - it is also the most accessible source of information that we have. When thinking about the future our subconscious tends to blossom from many of the iconic images of Science Fiction films that ignited our imaginations; if not Star Wars, then Her, if not Avatar, then Black Mirror. It's important to think about the future and the rise of virtual reality gaming is a very real threat to society as we know it. For better or worse, virtual reality will certainly become established and cause significant social changes to our world within the next couple of decades. It's worth exploring now, what those changes might be, so we can begin to understand what we might be up against...
