Taking place in a perhaps not so distant dystopian world where tangible human interaction has been completely substituted by the cyber world of digital devices, ANDROIDS is a juxtaposition of Nostalgia and Modernity, mixing elements of past, present and future. The story questions if perhaps we are not neglecting interacting with the physical world around us over the speediness and endless possibilities of the little devices we all carry.
The film is visually inspired by films such as “Blade Runner”, “Metropolis”, “A.I.”, the original “Twilight Zone” series amongst others.
In a world where human’s faces are brightened out by the light from their smart phones, a man buys an android in order to experience simulated human interaction. After exploring romantic scenarios together, the android finds the man’s smart phone and is instantly attracted to it, becoming like all humans with brightened out faces. She leaves the man alone, who becomes desperate when he realises that his phone is gone. For the first time, he sees his own face. Desperately calling for help in the streets, the crowd starts filming him instead of helping him.
After initially meeting each other at La Jolla International Fashion Film festival Josh Brandão and international makeup artist Einat Dan, together with Nicolai Kornum, have produced numerous fashion photo shoots and films together around the world. This is their 6th fashion film together. The crew was put together with talent from around the world including Spain, Israel, Denmark, Brazil, and England. The script is a rework of Josh Brandão’s first ever written script. The Location used for the café is an old public toilet in East London that has been converted into a restaurant and still features many of the toilet installations.
