Working Title: 22:22
I’m currently working on both a book and screenplay to accompany it. It’s a sci-fi set in a dystopian 22nd century Britain, in which the population has become unmanageable and the climate is dangerously warm. It’s mostly inspired by fatalistic predictions of the future, overpopulation, climate change, technology replacing the workforce etc. Aesthetically I’ve been very inspired by the dystopian urban scenes from Children of Men and Looper, and am hoping to have a similar macabre feel to it. The story is centred around a police officer who suffers from claustrophobia and anxiety, he struggles with his work, but to have a good job in this world is priceless. He is a selfish character and often chooses isolation but struggles with many of the scenes he encounters as a result of food shortages and overpopulation, as the story develops he struggles with many moral choices, does he shy away from the world or help as he should?
