Private Project

The Generator

Virtual technologies and human touch interaction blend when scientist Max Bernholm discovers that by connecting himself to a computer server he can achieve "the human feel." This allows users of the program, known as "The Generator," to experience the same feelings that the human subjects were experiencing when connected to their computer systems. Leander, the captain of the subjects was brought in as a kid and trained to make other people's dreams or fantasies come true within the virtual world. However when Max, testing his newest technology of mind control, starts to lose control, Leander and his girlfriend Natalia are drawn into a hazardous game. The only chance to stop Max depends on Leander gambling with his life, but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but the lives of his loved ones.

Director Statement

I wanted to play with this idea of people visually interacting with other people and take it to another level... And imagine a future where virtual reality, augmented reality and haptics technologies could make this possible...
What if it was possible in a near-future to go to a date without meeting the person face to face, people with physical disabilities could enjoy some physical activities again. How would we use it? And how would affect us emotionally? You could be in the company of the person of your choice or experience what they feel... Can really machines replace human touch? Trying to change our nature could potentially destroy us.
