Aspiring production company RO Pictures introduce their new sci-fi short film “Terminal”. “Terminal” is the brain child of Max Gee, a screenwriting PHD student specialising in posthuman noir. With nods to classics of the genre such as: Blade Runner, Gattaca and Ex Machina, Terminal is a sophisticated, intriguing short film.

The Story The world of the ‘The Terminal’ is a world of total equality. In the future, through the Terminal technology, the population is physically reconfigured from the nervous system to fit their next job. ”Tall, small, male, female, any job can be done by anyone. With the Terminal, we are all truly equal." - Are we really? Kim, a young job centre employee, is beginning to question how fair the system is when her co-worker Jay is prevented from being with the person they love when they are dying. But can there be love in a society where people’s physical appearance constantly changes? And how far is Kim willing to go to help Jay?

A female-led production “Terminal” is much more than a short film. This female-led project is passionate about improving opportunities for women in film, both in front of and behind the camera. The female-led story is written by a woman, produced by women in a production that aims to illustrate equality as filmmakers.

GoFundMe Campaign RO Pictures would like to raise £1,500 which will go towards food, transportation, insurance, props, location fees and costumes. There’s also the post-production work which will be of a very professional standard. We need excellent VFX, sound design and film scoring to make this work. To get as many people as possible to see our hard work we also require a budget for film festival entry fees.
