Two film fans create their own homage to Blade Runner with amazing results but they still need your help!
Luka Hrgović and Dino Julius are two friends who are no stranger to the world of filming as their professional careers lie within the advertising industry.
In their spare time, they have been creating a short film entitled, Slice of Life. Whilst this was not originally envisioned as a story set within the Blade Runner universe they discovered the references to the cult 1980s film kept on creeping into their own.
Hrgović describes the story as,
“low-life drug dealer who tries to turn his life around, but finds himself at the mercy of fate when he encounters a cop with an agenda of his own.”
Filming in just their own spare time with a few friends, the footage they have created so far is simply stunning. what follows is the first trailer that was released in January of this year.
What’s even more amazing is that the team decided to create this short film using old school effects including the extensive use of miniatures.

But now the team need your help to finish the film. There is an extensive miniature shoot ahead and money is needed to help to pay for, amongst other things, new filming equipment. They’re also very upfront and say that some cash will supplement their incomes as they are putting their careers on hold to get the film finished.
Their Kickstarter campaign has just over a week to go but has already been successful. Now they’re hoping to reach further stretch goals in able to make the film even better!
