In the not-too-distant future a genius programmer sacrifices everything in his personal and professional life to build a supercomputer of unprecedented power. Soon the artificial intelligence develops beyond anything he could imagine and the lines between reality and fantasy become increasingly blurred.

An obsessive, genius programmer sacrifices everything in his personal and professional life to build a computer of unprecedented power. After weeks in isolation and watching his life crumble around him, he must now confront the ever-increasing problem of a machine that is much smarter than himself.

The unique animation is the passion project of writer-director-producer Ryan Braund, formerly a director at the BBC. Chris Hees of Bridge Way Films co-produces and Troy Russell composed the score.

SC Films intend to submit the film to festivals heading into 2021. Delivery is expected imminently.

Braund commented: “This film started out as a very personal, passion project. Due to the pandemic and lockdowns, I was then able to focus on the intricate hand-drawing – over 30,000 frames of animation! The film is not only a celebration of animation but also of what can be created remotely and in adverse circumstances.”

Simon Crowe, CEO of SC Films International, noted: “Absolute Denial is an incredible undertaking in our truly extraordinary times. Ryan has written, produced and directed a fascinating animation that I hope we can premiere at a physical film festival in 2021!”
