I’m very sure that not many of you would have these titles before. Simply because they’re not large-scale hit movies. Both of these are sci-fi shortfilms (part of a trilogy) by Miguel de Olaso, a.k.a. “Macgregor,” a cinematographer and director of commercials.
Not much is known about the story, except for a statement from Olaso himself: “An ‘ultra-realistic’ spin on the themes of Blade Runner and Ghost In The Shell set in the world as it may be fifty or sixty years in future.” It is taken in the lines of District 9, so I’m guessing it might be a hit.

This unreleased short film Similo, about artificial people designed to be perfect lovers (you can preview, and support the production of Similo here) is also halfway through its development, somewhat slow.
The story: SIMILO is a science fiction love story set in the year 2064. The polar ice caps have melted. The world struggles to survive drought and poverty. But those few who live in the new cities in the arctic can live a happy life. At least, that´s what they want to believe. What is a Similo? Similo: An artificial person designed to be the perfect lover. Similo comes from the word Simulating.
