In the year 2032, people enjoy holographic interfaces and over-the-counter therapy. Quentin Albright, a mechanic, makes it through the day by abusing holographic memory devices. With them Quentin relieves precious memories of Wren, his ex-girlfriend, staving off depression. The kind words of a stranger inspire Quentin to reconnect with Wren. Ultimately Quentin must make a choice: cold reality or the warmth of holographic love.
"Blew" is Jamey Smith's graduate thesis film at SCAD. It is a sci-fi romance set in the near future - a dystopian world where society's infrastructure has begun to crumble. Themes of love, memory, addiction, and fate will pervade the film. "Blew" will be visually and narratively similar to such films as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Lost in Translation."
The film will be shot on the RED ONE camera by Crynma Zhang, one of SCAD's best cinematographers. The visual effects will be overseen by VFX supervisor Matthew Benson. Principal photography will take place in September and October in Savannah, GA.
