Experiencing Interruptions?

grydscaen: scout eve - "Fatal Error" (Episode 3)

When the world's democracies teetered too close to the sun unleashing nuclear war plunging the world into veiled autocracy radioactive fallout killing millions, those that survived developed psychic powers. Afraid those powers would threaten control, the Elite Government passed oppressive Article 15 Thought Crime laws unopposed for fear of retaliation to maintain the social order. But it was one voice, outspoken opposition leader of the Packrat hackers, Faid Callen with nothing to lose who dared risk everything to change the world in a fight for equality and justice he'd need a miracle to win.

As Article 15 swept through the Echelons stripping non-citizens and marginalized psychics of their rights, The powerful Elite Triumvirate led by ZenZen sent Faid's former hacker mentor, Kaizen the Immaculate after him. Yet, Kaizen's former student learned his lessons well. The world is changing. The grydscaen is all around you. Faid formed the Packrats to fight for equality, truth, justice. Will you join the fight? This is who we are. Based on the award-winning indie cyberpunk YA grydscaen novels and manga by Natsuya Uesugi.

Director Biography - Natsuya Uesugi DuBois

Natsuya Uesugi is a Fortune 500 Cybersecurity Anayst, UX Designer, Software Engineer and former White Hat Hacker as well as an Award-Winning Published Author and Indie Manga Artist with a BA degree in English, MBA in International Management, with an art school and music school background. With a certificate in Social Engineering, Natsuya writes articles and blogs on Net Neutrality, Privacy, Cybersecurity, Cyberbullying related to the profound impact of technology on society. Through writing and art they create to showcase and turn a spotlight on minority and intersectional characters in positions of power in an increasing complex technological landscape.

Of Mixed multi-cultural heritage, they see life through the lens of challenge, and systemic marginalization in a world where much needed dialogue is at times absent or coated in delicate Double Conscioussness-veiled "uncurious" artificial sweetener to dull the sting. Using their pen as an Intersexed Transgender QBIPoC minority with ADHD and Autism, their mission is to use their voice to bring visibility to those often silenced and point out critical threats and vulnerabilities pervasive in our collective security and technology infrastructure in a way everyone can understand. They focus on complex engaging stories showcasing intersectional diverse characters to encourage LGBT, non-gender conforming, differently-abled, and neuro-divergent young people to live their truth and dare to be their genuine selves. Through their multicultural lens, as a first-time filmmaker, Natsuya strives to create subtly provocative, diverse, real-world stories in realness and truth kicking up much needed dialogue at this unprecedented time in this real real world "my pen is my sword." In the words of Rousseau who so mused if not too far fetched "the written word" was a gift of the gods with such righteous an exquisite collective unconscious "anemnesis" and magnificent fortitude to unify, heal and truly "Change the World" and "End All War."
