The good folks over in Middlesbrough, UK producing Chipped have created a 16 minute (ZERO BUDGET!!!) trailer for their show.
Not heard of it yet?
In brief, a group of unchipped rebels fight for survival against the hordes of chipped and against the fractured government remnants.
Set for release mid-2014, Chipped is a sci-fi post-apocalyptic series set ten years from now. Crime rates are a lot worse than they are now, as well as unemployment and a lack of benefits to go around. England is in complete chaos. The government decide to introduce the chip. It becomes compulsory. A chip is inserted into the brain and the government can track everyone via satellite and control the chaos. It works, England is at peace. The whole world then follows.
A year later the satellite becomes infected with a computer virus and everyone who has been chipped becomes a controlled killing machine. By who or what is unclear. We follow a gang of survivors who rebelled against the chipped and are now fighting just to stay alive.
Let’s be clear, this is not yet a professional production. They’re doing some fundraising at the moment to help them finish he show, and from the looks of what they’ve made so far, it’ll be a decent series.
