Since emotions are a form of data or information, it’s important to accurately convey those to people and in a way that they will also accurately perceive. What happens when this data is manipulated based on how we want to portray ourselves, but not how we actually feel?
It’s been my first time writing and directing a science fiction short on the future of cognitive intelligence.
Jared is the creator of Ego, a cognitive intelligence device. Amanda has agreed to test Jared’s beta version of Ego and has her brain implanted with the neural nanotechnological chip. Amanda later learns that her twin sister, Stella, was murdered in homicide. As the story unfolds, we learn of how Ego manipulates Amanda’s emotions to believe she was involved in the heinous crime against her sister.
This film would not have happened if it weren’t for the team. Special thanks to Stefanie Djie (Director of Photography), Sasha K Gordon (Actress), Stacy Skinner (Hair and Make up Artist), and Peter Getz (Audio Engineer) for being part of this journey.
