Illuminated, and it Feels So Good

The people behind Broken Saints have returned with a wicked, William Gibson-esque science fiction movie called Illuminated! Here’s a plot summary:

Set in the not-too-distant future, planet Earth is being ravaged by rampant environmental change and collapsing economies, as widespread social movements triggered by online interaction are reshaping the face of world politics. Saturated by media, people have lost their ability to dream and plug into a sophisticated communication system each night called the DreamField, which gives them access to a virtual dream-state, networked with the rest of the world. Online, dreams have become just another kind of media, and a group of dreamstars have emerged as the culture’s new celebrities. Coming from an established political family, Aya is one of the most popular dreamstars, and millions plug into her dreams every night to experience her adventures through a hyper-dimensional vide-game reality, live as they sleep.

I love it! I’m getting visions of Paprika and The Animatrix! Details of the series premiere are sketchy at best, but knowing the Broken Saints guys, this will totally be worth the wait.

Hang on, what’s that? You don’t know who the Broken Saints guys are? Well, then you should drop what you’re doing immediately and go and watch Broken Saints!
