OTHERLIFE

ROLE: PRODUCTION DESIGNER

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/otherlife-review-1015399

“A stylish piece of sci-fi pulp fiction made with a sense of scale that belies its indie budget. Evocatively rendered by designer Helen O’Loan as a kind of nightmare art installation from which there is no escape, the cube in which Ren wakes up is black except for a wall of neon bars, which ticks off the days until her confinement ends”

“The near-future setting, combined with Helen O’Loan’s resourceful, interior-heavy production design, protect the film from extending its sci-fi inclinations beyond the point that can be reasonably achieved within its modest budget. The atmosphere is big but the settings are contained.”

 

Ren Amari is the driven inventor of a revolutionary new drug. OtherLife expands the brain’s sense of time and creates virtual reality directly in the user’s mind. With OtherLife, mere seconds in real life feel like hours or days of exciting adventures. As Ren and her colleagues race around the clock to launch OtherLife, the government muscles in to use the drugs as a radical solution to prison overcrowding. They will create virtual cells where criminals serve long sentences in just minutes of real time. When Ren resists, she finds herself an unwilling guinea pig trapped in a prison cell in her mind. She must escape before she descends into madness, and then regain control of OtherLife before others suffer the same fate.
