AMP: a scifi short movie of survival, betrayal, and the quest for redemption (video: in full).

In the vast realm of science fiction, the short film “AMP” stands out as a gripping narrative that delves deep into the complexities of human relationships, even in a futuristic setting. Crafted by Adam Marisett, this film offers more than just stunning visuals and futuristic concepts.

The story unfolds a decade after Quinn left a war that his father initiated. Now, Quinn and his companion, Amp, reside in the slums, peddling illegal custom-tech. Their primary concern? Scrounging enough to afford the batteries vital for Amp’s survival.

One of the most poignant lines from the film, “The last time you needed my help, I woke up in a prison cell with a bullet hole in my gut,” immediately sets the tone. It’s evident that there’s a history of betrayal and danger between the characters, adding a palpable tension to the story. This line not only hints at past events but also raises questions about trust, loyalty, and the lengths one might go to for redemption or revenge.

However, the past has a way of catching up. An old childhood friend finds Quinn, forcing him to face a dilemma: continue living under the oppressive rule of the corrupt Coreley Corporation or confront a war he never wished to be part of.

The film is a brainchild of Adam Marisett, who not only directed but also contributed to the story and writing alongside Casey Chourney. The cast features Matthew MacCaull as Quinn and Elysia Rotaru as Zoey, bringing depth and emotion to their roles. The film’s production boasts a talented team, from the evocative music by Sean Beeson and Pontus Rufelt to the captivating cinematography by Cliff Hokanson.

The visual effects, a standout feature of the film, were meticulously crafted by a dedicated team, with Adam Marisett wearing multiple hats, showcasing his skills in 3D modeling, animation, lighting, and shading. The stunts, coordinated by Darryl Quon, add an adrenaline-pumping edge to the narrative.
