Smombievasion (in development)

 

A biopunk parkour film set in a hyper-reality world of fungal zombies


 

SYNOPSIS 

When an anti-aging energy drink, sourced from fungal-zombie caterpillars, sparks a plague that has turned almost everyone into smartphone zombies (aka Smombies), a bioengineer must fight his gaming addiction, in order to save mankind from a self-serving genetics conglomerate. With the help of a hacker, who leaves behind augmented reality vlogs as clues, he teams up with a parkour traceur to fight off Smombies, along his journey in search of his lost identity. “Smombievasion” is a biopunk action adventure that is not all blood and gore, but more shrooms and spores!

Home Takeaways


“Home Takeaways” is a heritage cooking series, featuring cultural recipes passed down from one generation to another. In the first season of 9 webisodes, we catch Debbie Chow, a Hong Kong-born Canadian, just before she relocates from her birthplace to USA with her American husband and two toddlers. She learns from her mother how to cook a selection of her favorite Cantonese dishes. These takeaways from home, she hopes, will not only allow her children to grow up enjoying Cantonese home cooking, but will also preserve bite-sized heritage for future generations to come.

Home Takeaways – soy sauce chicken

Home Takeaways – Sweet Ginkgo Nut Soybean Soup

More webisodes to come…

Reflections – a moving painting by an Artificial Intelligence


“Reflections” is a moving painting by an artificial intelligence, named Albert Iynstein. It reflects on Hong Kong’s fast-paced, often robotic city life, and juxtaposes it with nature’s humanisation in the form of a haiku. Using neural networks developed by Paint A.I., Albert Iynstein studied many visual artworks before his time, namely Picasso, Munch and Hokusai, which inspired him to apply their styles (not filters) to this moving painting artificially and intelligently.

Artificial Intelligent Painter: Albert Iynstein
Artificial Intelligence Developer: Boris Boege
A.I. Assistant Developer: Patrick Kosiol
Director & Haiku: Cassandra Chan
