Hello, my name is Amar Santhosh and I am an Entertainment Technology Major at City Tech. My focus is Video and Sound. After graduating and getting my Master’s Degree, I hope to become a director on blockbuster films. For my Culmination Project, I wrote produced and directed Fetch, a narrative short film.
What is Fetch?
Fetch is a narrative cyberpunk short film. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, cyberpunk is defined as “a genre of science fiction set in a lawless subculture of an oppressive society dominated by computer technology”. In Fetch, set in the near distant future, an Amazon-like mega-corporation has become a monopoly in all forms of commerce. With all sales outside the company illegalized, people who need outlawed products turn to an underground network of sellers. The people who deliver these outlawed products are known as “fixers”. In Fetch we see one night in the life of Peggy, a fixer completing her assigned tasks while being chased by a mysterious figure.
