What would happen if, in the not too distant future (because far distant future scenarios are really silly), robots decided to rise up against man? There’s a stunning proof of concept trailer for Keloid by Big Lazy Robot, that you need to see to believe. It’s not a big Hollywood project, but rather a film by seven people.
In a not too distant future, societies of all countries come to rely on an intricate network of artificial intelligence devices designed to bring efficacy to man’s life. Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A. I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority.
As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers.
The world has become a cell for all man and women, who withstand and endure their lives, rather than living them. Machines might have found a solution.
From now on, you are set free. ..
Keloid is not about robots, it is about men. Big Lazy Robot created this spec film — more than two years in the making — with the purpose of giving free reign to the creative aspects of production that many times are so much missed during profit work. And yes, we enjoyed the ride!
