Attack of the Cyber Octopuses

This retro-futuristic cyberpunk short film takes place in Neo-Berlin in 2079. A dark, rain-soaked city held by mega corporations where the only enjoyment in life is connecting to cyberspace and taking “Binary Trip” a cyber drug that fries your neurons but promises a feeling better than a hundred orgasms at once. In this setting, a team of crack cyberspace detectives are investigating a new menace: the army of cyber octopuses that are terrorizing the city.

The idea

The aim of “Attack of the Cyber Octopuses” is to re-create the look and feel of the Eighties Sci-fi classics, without using CGI. Therefor it is shot in real locations and used various miniature models and handmade props.
The authors want film to work as a metaphor for our society, as we are addicted to the internet as much as the Neo-Berliners are to cyberspace. So, beside action scenes there’ll be room for philosophical thoughts of society and our lives… many experts have noted, we are already living in a cyberpunk world.

The film was shot with international crew in Tallinn, Estonia.
Currently the project is in postproduction.
The film is a co-production between Chaosmonger OÜ and Exitfilm. 
Started with help of the Kickstarter in early 2017, the film will be released internationally online in July/August and theatrically in Estonia September 2017.
