gravestmor's got the goods on Renaissance, a new sci-fi film set in "Paris 2054," directed by Christian Volckman.
Marcus, at gravestmor, describes the film as "Sin City meets Blade Runner meets Metropolis meets Waking Life" (though hopefully not the latter) – and, from the looks of it, I'd add Alphaville.
But, either way, the film seems further proof that students of architectural design should stop pinning all their hopes solely on architecture, and consider guerilla careers as film, or even game, start-ups, using their graphic ideas and energy to take over Hollywood. Invest in some Power Macs, buy some editing software, talk to your musician friends, get a writer – hire BLDGBLOG – and suddenly that M.Arch degree will put you behind the Oscar stand. Drooling champagne and groping Salma Hayek.
But I digress.
These are film stills taken from the movie's press section – the film's in French, by the way – and a bit more info can be found at Twitch and Variety.
Then start outlining your own cinematic debut.
