A little too much eye candy in sci-fi shorts nowadays? I agree. Sci-fi is about to get creepy again!
Transporter is a finalist in Ron Howard & Canon’s Project Imaginat10n film contest and a contender for the grand prize.
Starring stage and soap star, Petronia Paley, and featuring Taimak (Bruce Leroy of The Last Dragon), Transporter (10:00) is a sci-fi psychological thriller about a gifted 19-year-old at a crossroads in his troubled life. He has long dreamed of escaping his dysfunctional family and their monstrous family business. However, his manipulative mother is convinced that he’s the key to the success she craves. In order to gain his freedom, and earn redemption, he must put his life on the line by betraying his mother, and taking on his envious and violent brother. The film explores themes of escapism, ambition, envy, culpability, and one special theme that you’ll have to watch the film to discover. It’s set in the world of human trafficking – and beyond.
This project was born out of Ron Howard’s and Canon’s Project Imaginat10n. I’m one of the project’s winning photographers. While my image was technically a contest winner, it ultimately wasn’t chosen by any of the five celebrity directors to inspire their short films. I certainly wasn’t happy about that. But then came a fortunate twist of fate. Canon added a film contest to Project Imaginat10n where five non-celebrity directors will have their films exhibited alongside the films of the five celebrity directors. These films will be released under the banner of Ron Howard Presents… And it just so happened that I was a filmmaker itching to make another film! And well…here it is!
That’s all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
