#SciFiSunday: Teaser Trailer For Feature Film, Brute Sanity

I'm deeply intrigued by a new, independent science fiction film on the horizon. Brute Sanity is host to a blend of sci-fi, psychological horror, and "the battle of science over tradition." I hope emphatically to see this film in its entirety as it leans towards desiring that the audience ask questions more than receive answers, a tactic I find endearing about cinema as a whole whether intentional or not.

This cerebral approach is only heightened by its star Adjovi Koene (above) who plays Keradin, "an FBI-trained neuropsychologist [who] teams up with a thief to find a reality-altering device while her insane ex-boss unleashes bizarre traps to stop her." I'm certain much discussion will be had here in regards to how Keradin's identity and the dynamics of it interweave with the obstacles she faces.

Boston based co-star, writer, and director of Brute Sanity Sam Vanivray is currently working hard to get more eyes on the teaser through Thunderclap, an online platform that helps amplify social media engagement with your project. Sam's goal is to receive 100 supporters within the next four days. With simply one, scheduled tweet, you can show your support here. His intimate ties with his creation currently give him the insight into what Brute Sanity will offer:

The hero, Keradin, struggles with her lack of commitment--when is it the right choice to quit, and when should she see a major life choice to completion? Simultaneously, Keradin deals with her unhinged ex-boss Maskin, a swarm of FBI agents, a team of thieves, and a reality-altering alien device. Keradin fights fer her sanity, her life, and for science.

Yes, science: The alien device can alter reality because it intersects our world with a much larger world--Superreality. Our reality is a subset of Superreality. Researching the device, and potential future interactions with Superreality creatures, would greatly advance humankind's knowledge. But the villain, Agent Maskin, would have the Superreality device (composed of two "artifacts") for himself in order to control anybody he wants. Scientific research of the artifacts would grind to a halt, and the influence of Maskin would spread, crumbling civilization.

The alien device is a fictional way to demonstrate a real life scientific theory that perception is an interface. We all know that what we see in everday life isn't real--looking in a microscope shows a smaller scale of building blocks. But it may go further than that--it's possible that we evolved with completely fake perceptual abilities: we have "interfaces" to reality in the same way that icons on your phone are interfaces to make the computer chip inside the phone do what you want without knowing how that computer chip actually works.
