Living in Sim
Living in Sim is a reality-bending trip through the eyes of Ed, whose mind is off exploring other worlds, while you experience life in his motionless body.
His two drug-crazed flatmates, Wesley and Ivan, argue about whether the world is a simulation instead of tidying the filthy flat.
Wesley wants to prove the theory by throwing helpless Ed off the roof!
Living in Sim explores humankind’s evolving relationship with technology and the resulting philosophical questions we are faced with:
How does social media influence our thinking and mood?Do we have free will?Do we live in a simulation?Should we be more concerned about the upcoming existential risk of artificial intelligence and the singularity?
We believe such issues are of great interest and importance to public discourse, and as the acceleration of technological progress continues, VR provides a unique and poignant medium through which to explore these subjects.
The theme of the film has been inspired by the work of Elon Musk, Professor Nick Bostrom and other great contemporary minds, as well as the show Black Mirror. In contrast, the characters are somewhat of a modern portrayal of those in Withnail and I – a classic British cult comedy.
