Finishing his three years of film school at The Art Institute of Portland and completing his senior thesis film Utopia, which can be seen at http://www.utopiashortfilm.com/ Ian realized that the concept he was exploring was far to large to be contained in a 15 min short film. So, with one term left and a feature length script in hand, Ian has set out to Produce and Direct his first feature film while giving other fellow students as well as recent graduates the opportunity to expand their skills while creating a project they can all be passionate about!

This is not your typical sci-fi thriller. It is first and foremost a love story between two very strong women who should be, and in most circumstances are, sworn enemies. This film explores the nuances of human connection while challenging stereotypes and encouraging fresh new outlooks on what tomorrow’s human condition may look like.
