About Thomas Brin

SCIENCE FICTION: Video Podcast. The Adventures of Thomas Brin is an Internet-based, episodic movie about a man who thinks he's a machine. With a Jules Verne meets Silent Running aesthetic, the Adventures of Thomas Brin harkens back to 60's scifi were the visual effects (VFX) did not have to look real to draw a viewer into the story. Shot on a virtual set in an Indiana garage, this surreal science fiction series started in July 2005. As such, it is one of the first independent movie series to be published exclusively on the Internet (vodcast cinema).

My vision for the genre of science fiction is to create worlds that, although they are obviously fictitious in look and feel, send the viewer into a fantasy-like realm. I like to think that I am beginning to learn how to use VFX (special visual effects) to create moving, impressionist paintings where the mere hint of an idea is sufficient to let the viewers imagination take over. In today's world where even the worst movies can have stunning, well-crafted, real-looking VFX, I wanted to do something different, creating an almost picturebook-like realm.
