Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.03.16] France scifi action thriller

Leave it to the French to bemoan the death of 35mm in the midst of a sci-fi thriller. In the case of Ickerman, an impressive looking debut from newcomers Raphaël Hernandez & Savitri Joly-Gonfard, the story concerns a high-school teacher on a mission to save his best friend from virtual world of the future. Bring it on.

With original music by Robin Coudert (aka. "Rob") (Maniac, Horns), this proof-of-concept teaser was filmed in one-night in Paris' business district La Défense and produced in record-time (three months with only one VFX artist) with a limited budget. They're hoping to start filming in early 2017 once they secure funding.

Official Synopsis:
Taking place in a futuristic megalopolis where new technologies and virtual reality are ruling society, Ickerman follows the adventures of a nostalgic high school teacher obsessed with 35 mm films and old cars. As he tries to rescue his best friend from the guru of this digital era, he falls into his imaginary world, acting like the characters he admires, and gives back to this world a part of reality...

There's definitley some great FX work on display here considering the resources.
