Meet the lovely and talented actress who brings Roxë Jones to life.
Roxë is a virtual reality programmer on the come-up — and April Matthis is a super-talented shooting star of stage and screen. Both actress and character are passionate, determined, fearless women marching to their own beat, with eyes on the prize.
Not your typical sci-fi protagonist, huh?
ROXË15 HAS 7 DAYS REMAINING ON INDIEGOGO. We need to raise $4500 to edit and master the film. Every dollar counts!
Bring a new voice to science fiction. Become a backer today.
You can next catch April doing her thing as Eunice Hubbell in “A Streetcar Named Desire” at the Yale Repertory Theatre (until Oct. 12), alongside Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux of HBO’s “True Blood”) among talented others.
Strictly speaking this is not necessarily futuristic, but it feels like it, no? Maybe the sexy robotic thing that Wendy & Lisa have going on? In any case, enjoy.
And hopefully, it’s A-U-T-O-MATIC that you will support a new direction in science fiction. ROXË15 has 11 Days left on IndieGoGo.
Back the campaign, support indie film!
We love Tron. (The original, of course.) Remember this dude? Not the one you want to be trapped inside a circuit-board with, fa shizzle. Thinking about virtual reality got us feeliing nostalgic about past versions of VR — a category which Tron rules, as far as we’re concerned. People….inside a computer. How cool is that?
We are dealing with virtual reality of the more contemporary persuasion.
Roxë15 puts Roxë herself inside the software program she created. It’s a whole new world run rules that Roxë created, but someone else is breaking. Curious? Help us reveal what’s up to everyone by getting this film finished!
ROXE15 on IndieGoGo until 9.30.2013
Get into it — become a backer today.
You do realize that you’re leaving little pieces of yourself wherever you go, right? The cup you left on the cafe table, your spit on the sidewalk, your wad of chewed-up gum in the gutter, a few strands of hair in a public bathroom sink. Well, NYC artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg collects DNA-filled items left behind in public spaces and takes them to Genspace, a “community biotechnology lab” in Brooklyn. Genspace extracts the DNA, which gives the artist intell on the person who left it. Says Dewey-Hagborg: “From a cigarette butt, I can learn where someone’s ancestors likely came from, their gender, eye color, hair color, complexion, freckles, their tendency to be overweight and a handful of dimensions of the face as well with a certain likelihood.” The DNA doesn’t give her an exact portrait, but it’s enough info for her to come up with a mug that she can translate into art. No wonder their faces look so spooky!
Word on the street is that Sony will soon unveil their virtual reality headset for PlayStation 4. VR is the next-level gaming experience and apparently, Sony has taken it way beyond ts current 3D goggles, the HMZ-T2. If anybody has the bank and the know-how to make it happen, it’s Sony. The electro giant says it doesn’t comment on rumors, but if you listen to industry sources, the announcement may come at the Tokyo Game Show this month.
Is your brain ready to live your game?
Fast-forward 38 years.
In 2051, virtual reality is a full-brain experience.
Roxë is right in the middle of the action — the question is, will she survive it?
Roxë15 is next-level science fiction — now raising funds on IndieGoGo to edit and master the film. Become a backer of sci-fi’s new voice.
