After a failed attempt to do the story justice, Alex Burchfield approached us to help create a short film he wrote titled DLC. We used the upcoming the global competition “The Rode Reel” to create a fuller vision.
Instead of telling the complete story from earlier drafts, we set out to tell a short ( the competition has a 3 min limit) version that introduced the world and the premise. We converted our headquarters in Denver, Colorado into a Drug Den and DLC was the most visually detailed short we have ever created. Telling this visually with little dialog was a challenge for us, but we believed the end result is something fantastic.
The story takes place in an alternate reality where downloading is not only illegal but policed by the individual corporations. This world also has audio tracks that act like drugs. The video is a PSA from one such company Sonic Solutions, with the aim to show that downloading can even be deadly!
We hope to create a full short of this rich world sometime in the future.
