In April, Philips released their collaboration between five filmmakers from Ridley Scott Associates, called Parallel Lines. Scott’s commercial division RSA was asked to create a series of groundbreaking short films in a genre of their choice, using “the same unifying theme.” RSA directors submitted forty-five treatments and Philips selected five it believed were most ground-breaking: Jake Scott, Greg Fay, Johnny Hardstaff, Carl Erik Rinsch, and Hi-Sim.
Philips has provided us with an exclusive behind the scenes making of video for Johnny Hardstaff‘s future film noir sci-fi thriller titled Dark Room, which you can watch right now embedded after the jump.
Darkroom: An investigator zooms in on his subject in the future film noir sci-fi thriller with a dark secret at its core. Directed by Johnny Hardstaff
His most notable works to date remain the politically provocative shorts films, History of Gaming and Future of Gaming, which have now been inducted into the National Film Archive. Hardstaff also famously created the experimental music video Like Spinning Plates for Radiohead, and is responsible for a raft of innovative, contemporary, design based commercials for leading brands.
