Independent filmmaker Dylan Nathan hopes to develop his sci-fi pitch Extropy - Speedhack into a feature film, and created this short film in an effort to sell the concept. Want to see?

The 2+ minute short film is a blast, and basically mashes up visual concepts from Akira, the first-person shooter videogame genre and Tron: Legacy. It’s a blast, and the insane bike at the center of the short is something that should definitely be in Batman’s garage.

Check out the mini-synopsis for the film below:

When reality is augmented, DNA is synthetic and machines are sentient, what does it mean to be real ? What is life ? 

Speedhack is a high-octane journey through a near future city sprawl. Created by Dylan J Nathan, the short is a proof of concept scene from EXTROPY, a sci-fi feature film for the 21st century.

The effects can be a bit hit-and-miss, but for a short film made on a shoestring budget by one guy, it’s still a lot of fun. Check it out below and let us know what you think:
