Nanoflix, the company behind Killer Robot, has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming machinima feature, Stolen Life, which stars the voice of Claudia Black from the SCI FI Channel series Farscape and Stargate SG1. The futuristic noir detective mystery is currently in post-production and is due to be completed by the end of the year.
Stolen Life also stars Chris Jones, who lent his voice to the groundbreaking Tex Murphy series of interactive adventures. Here, Jones voices the role of Pi, a robotic private eye sent to investigate the disappearance of company property and the mysterious demise of a worker at a remote refueling station on an asteroid. Pi finds an inactive robot named Kieru (Black), the facility’s manager, who harbors secrets about a special project. To get to the bottom of the mystery, Pi also interrogates the facility’s eccentric crew, who have carved out an existence for themselves in the rocks and ice of the asteroid.
Directed by Jacqueline Turnure and produced by Peter Rasmussen, The CG-animated film was created using a video-game engine over the course of a year. Fans can look forward to brief clips from Stolen Life as the production progresses. The trailer recently premiered at the Dragoncon sci-fi and fantasy convention in Atlanta, Georgia and is now available for download at www.zipworld.com.au/~raz/nima/SL_Tumb/sl_ss.html.
