"Inside the Crossover Lab" - keying & compositing by James Sterling
|Crossover is a science fiction action adventure film intended as a proof-of-concept for a feature length version and potential franchise. It also functions as a complete self-contained film. Crossover’s 20 minute narrative will be crafted using professional quality filmmaking & visual effects that are tantamount to a modern big-budget blockbuster.|
|Principal photography for Crossover will begin late 2015 in New York City shooting on the Red Epic Dragon. Red cameras have photographed many popular films such as Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Trek Into Darkness.|
Crossover takes place in the distant future after the planet’s surface temperature has risen to a level that can no longer support biological life as we know it. Humanity exists in two forms: humans and transhumans. The remaining biological humans are confined to underground sectors where survival is still an option. Transhumans are those who have permanently transplanted their consciousness into artificial bodies in order to join society on the surface. This transplantation process is known as “crossover”.
The story follows a gifted young hacker named June from Sector 6, a place where the poor and less-fortunate live out their lives, rarely granted the privilege of joining society on the surface. With help from her father, Damon, and a rebellious team on the surface, June is given the opportunity to escape the underground by means of an illegal crossover. Will June be the first to successfully circumvent the system where so many before have failed?
