Snowblind

Snowblind is an indie SF film set in a parallel universe where a new ice age hit earth in the middle of the 20th century, which is of course the ideal plot device to enable cowboys with machine guns in the snow. It’s all shot using green-screen so it has a graphic novel unreal quality to it, but looks pretty slick. The trailer is more western and action film than SF but as usual I like mentioning independent film makers and seeing what they can do these days. The trailer is embedded below:

What a neat idea! I mean, sure, it looks like cutscenes from a mid-90s computer game, and it's derivative of at least a half dozen things, but still: very neat idea.

It's also interesting that rather than the traditional "Cowboys and Indians" thing, they've substituted Indians-From-India for American Indians. There's a whole lot of fun directions you could take that sort of conceptual pun.
