Sadly, it appears that SyFy has not chosen to produce this series for television, but have made noises about creating a web series instead. The 90 minute film pilot will run at some unknown time in the not too distant future, so I will look forward to that for now.
Originally seen at GFR, but it has been working its way through the internets for awhile.
Shuffle looks very interestingly weird, starring TJ Thynes and directed by Kurt Kuenne.
Shuffle is the tale of a man who begins experiencing his life out of order; every day he wakes up at a different age, on a different day of his life, never knowing where or when he’s going to be once he falls asleep. He’s terrified and wants it to stop – until he notices a pattern in his experience, and works to uncover why this is happening to him – and what or who is behind it.
The imagery in this trailer is very reminiscent of Blade Runner. There is no way to discern what the story will be about from the trailer, but I love the overlap of cybernetics and robotics with the poverty and grit of Bangkok. The trailer alone makes a fantastic impression just as a short film.
The producers have promised a full (12 minute) feature this summer at their site on Vimeo. My understanding is that they are hoping to parlay that into a full length feature movie production. If it is as cool as this trailer, I wish them luck.
As I age I have noticed that I don’t often look forward to movies, and having children I find that movies have come and gone before I have even noticed them. That said, I am really looking forward to this movie.
