IMMUNE

High Concept, Sci-Fi Series, 

by Michael Sloan, Jeff Barmash, George Erschbamer & Geraldine Blecker

130 Years ago, a comet traveling past earth encapsulated the planet with an iridescent, glowing dust. For 3 days, it contaminated everything it touched. No one suspected that this was the first wave of an Alien invasion; the cosmic dust the beginning of a process whereby human DNA would be transformed and mutate, allowing the aliens to inhabit the human body. Now, a century later, the transmutation is close to completion. But the aliens must first eliminate the very few throughout the world whose DNA remains pure and unaffected. It is the IMMUNES – who come from all walks of life – housewife to serial killer – who will determine the fate of mankind. Their lives forever altered, as they are either annihilated, or rescued and relocated to a covert location and forced to leave behind all they have ever known. Watch the trailer below!

THE SOUND MASTER 
Psycho-thriller set against a surrealistic technotronic landscape.  Techno, Trance, Hip-Hop, House: Music of the urban subculture: permanent fixture of the cityscape; DJs and rappers the superstars of the New Millennium. Thousands of kids attend spontaneous parties, publicized by word of mouth. Just harmless fun. Until the killings start. The attacks seem random. The police helpless. Thousands of kids, all potential witnesses, saw nothing. Or thought it was another special effect. Only ALEX, brilliant sound engineer has a possible clue. He just happened to get a murder on "chip" - in top quality sound. And because sound is his obsession, he starts "enhancing" the unique "sample", developing it to its full gory potential. So while the cops fruitlessly use traditional methods in a desperate hunt for the killer, Alex is already mixing the one and only clue into the hookline of his macabre new dance-floor single... and developing his own ideas about finding the murderer. Check out the trailer below!
