The Last Generation to Die: A Short FilmSeptember 22nd, 2013
The Last Generation to Die is a short science fiction film being created with Kickstarter funding. As of this writing, the team has exceeded its $9,000 funding goal, but the campaign remains open until October 7 if you’d like to participate. The filmmaker, Tim Maupin, is looking at a potential future world where humans discover how to stop aging through genetics.
Here is how the film is described on the Kickstarter page: “The story takes place roughly 30 years in the future at the moment when science has first figured out how to stop aging through genetics. It is framed around the gulf between generations that would occur with the first release of this technology. A daughter who works for a company called Aperion Life- the first to bring this new technology to the public- wants to save her aging father. She starts him on the trials but he soon stops coming. The film continues with the conflict rising between them as she wants him to live on with her while he feels a natural ending is more human.”
One of the rewards, beginning at $50, includes a 3D-printed DNA helix, which is the Aperion Life company logo in the film.
