Our submission to the Neon challenge using unity 2017.3
Set in a dystopian future where tech has become god and humans exist in a state of digitized life forms. The last remaining of the half breeds must intercede to reclaim what it means to be human.

In this post-apocalyptic future, technology is god and proceeds to entrap humanity in its seductive, addictive grasp. The enforcers, long term ‘worshipers’ are charged to watch over the captured, ensuring they persist in its grasp. The priestess, a half breed attempts to intercede on their behalf…for the soul of humanity.
For the 'Worship' scene we drew inspiration from a number of factual and fictional concepts. We looked to the existence of more intelligent, knowledgeable life forms merging this with the idea that technology is neutral, addictive and the debate that Artificial Intelligence could take over. We projected this concept into the future. We were also inspired by movies like War of the worlds, John Carter and many others that suggest the ideas of -
• The endurance of the human soul beyond the perishable body, drawing parallels to ghost code that remain and often cause program glitches long after they have been forgotten.
• The idea that post-apocalyptic society would simultaneously regress and advance with respect to technology and community.
• African, Caribbean and American cultural reference to body paint and its importance in indigenous spiritual activity like worship and intercession.
• War of the worlds Martian fighting machine and aliens – Entity Conduit……..
