Talented Fans Are Putting Together A Stunning ‘Blade Runner’ Film [Video]

The trailer you are about to view is not from Blade Runner 2049. It’s from a short film called Slice of Life from Croatian filmmaker Luka Hrgovic and his friends.

From The Verge:

Hrgovic described the film as being about a “low-life drug dealer who tries to turn his life around, but finds himself at the mercy of fate when he encounters a cop with an agenda of his own.” The movie doesn’t include the original film’s Richard Deckard, but follows the “lives of other characters that are trying to make a living in the dangerous streets of futuristic Los Angeles.” When finished, he anticipates that it will be around 20–25 minutes long, and that the film will be entered in some film festivals.

Unfortunately, none of this will happen if the team can’t raise $30K to finish the production. To that end, they are prepping a Kickstarter campaign (“in a month or so”) to fund additional filming and post-production. And if the lawsuit fiasco over the Star Trek: Axanar fan film is any indicator, there is no guarantees that this short film will see the light of day even if the crowdfunding is successful.

Still, you can keep up with the production on Facebook and this making-of thread on the RPF.
