FTN is very proud to be launching this very cool new short movie trailer for Welcome To Forever.

In Welcome to Forever death is no longer an issue as consciousness can be uploaded so life can continue forever… however, this looks at the consequences and paralleling the bias and issues of modern society it asks if immortality is all we think it might be.

Welcome to Forever will be debuting at Sci-Fi London from May 29th – full programme here

A government technician runs into trouble at the house of a digitized person whom he’s been sent to terminate.

Synopsis

It’s 2063. A service truck stops in front of a neglected old house. A government technician gets out and walks to the back where he severs a “Life-Link Cable.” His name is Cal Jenner and he’s here to terminate Mr. Cooper, a digitized person who’s been malfunctioning for years.

Decades ago, scientists discovered how to scan a person’s brain into a computer.

The tech went mass-market and millions were converted into digitized persons. Then, a computer virus wiped out the system, leaving them all infected and malfunctioning.

Inside Mr. Cooper’s living room, Cal finds an inoperative head-cube – a cheap video device that allows digitized people to interact with the real world. Cal finds a working head cube in another room. Cooper greets him and Cal tells him there was a glitch in the system and he’s going to repair him. Cooper gets agitated, thinking he’ll be overwritten and he attacks Cal with a homemade robot. Cal escapes through a window and cuts the power to the house disabling the robot.

Cal reenters the house and finds Cooper’s head cube still on. He tells Cooper the truth about the virus and that he’s there to turn him off because “they passed a law,'” then he pulls the plug.

In a back bedroom, Cal discovers Cooper’s digitized dog. He should power it down and leave it for the salvage crew but decides instead to keep it because as long as it’s still functioning, Cooper will be remembered and loved and missed.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
