Tears In The Rain (A Blade Runner Short Film)

Published on Jan. 31, 2017

Tears In The Rain, the award-winning South African sci-fi short by filmmaker Christopher Grant Harvey, is an unabashed love letter to the 1982 motion picture Blade Runner, and Philip K. Dick's novel 'Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep'? Set in Los Angeles in the latter part of the twenty-first century, the short stars Sean Cameron Michael as John Kampff, a mysterious law enforcement official who is tracking down a man named Andy Smith (Russel Savadier), who is suspected of being a replicant: an artificial being almost indistinguishable from humans. With its haunting, 80s-inspired synthesized score, futuristic Los Angeles cityscape complete with flying cars, looming ultra-skyscrapers, and neon-haloed, grime covered streets, Tears In The Rain convincingly duplicates the dark dystopian aesthetic of Blade Runner. ● TEARS HOMEPAGE ● http://www.christophergrantharvey.com/tears-in-the-rain.html ● Music ● Siddhartha Barnhoorn http://www.sidbarnhoorn.com https://siddharthabarnhoorn.bandcamp.com/album/tears-in-the-rain ● Additional Music ● Neon Vandal https://neonvandal.bandcamp.com/album/tears-in-the-rain-music-from-the-motion-picture ● Poster by Kelvin Liew ● https://lovingit2.artstation.com/projects/yBYO9 Spanish captions provided by Ana Herrán Shot on Red One MX Graded Using FilmConvert This film is not intended to profit, threaten, or compete with any existing or forthcoming material.
