Optimus

Writer, director, d.o.p., editor, titles

 

A couple adopts a surrogate robot baby to prove they're able to care for a real one, although neither of them is sure they're up to the task.

A dystopian sci-fi film with jokes. Inspired as much by the stories of Ray Bradbury and Shirley Jackson as by films like Safety Not Guaranteed and Mistress America, Optimus is a mumblecore comedy from a dark future. It's actually currently being screened at various festivals in the UK and abroad, in case you were looking to see it on a larger screen.

Starring Lia Albers and Javier Jarquin. Sound recorded and mixed by Adam Misrahi. Music by Mike Nisbet.
