From an otherworldy village made of recycled computer parts a hacking collective performs the most outrageous hacks in US & world history full of social commentary & gutsy platform takeovers. They are the virtual heroes of a world drawn closer and closer to authoritarian rule until they cross the line that takes them from beloved hackers to first-world terrorists.
Neptune Frost is the love story between an inter-sex runaway and a coltan miner and the virtual marvel born as a result of their union –
MartyrLoserKing—The world's #1 trend The Authority seeks to end.

Born of an e-waste camp far from the western eye, a village made of recycled computer parts sprouts on a hilltop in Burundi. This is the home of the world’s most subversive hacking collective inventively exposing the gluttonous feast on natural resources from belly of the beast using the gutsiest platform takeovers in the history of a mystery: Who is the MartyrLoserKing?

The pitch
We put our energy into everything we touch, everything we focus on, and maybe even into the things we ignore, but conscious energy is an investment. It's what some mean when they type “thoughts and prayers”. Many artists embed and charge their creations with "thoughts and prayers", an energy you feel when it reaches you. Maybe it unlocks something. Perhaps it's the sincerity of the artist emitting a frequency that couples with our own to heal or release the moment. Maybe the beat or melody offers something unsaid, a sensation we never knew we had or needed touched. Maybe it does nothing, just like typing “thoughts and prayers," but that data holds space. It holds the space for us to be moved beyond convention, to experience and explore new stories, maybe even other forms of storytelling.
I wrote a story that I think demystifies the connection, that highlights technology as awareness, that shatters convention and honors the means through which this conversation is taking place. And for me, you are the most precious of resources. You hold the power to fuel a dream and a transformation. You can shake the industry of imagination with a thought (and a prayer). You have masterminded revolutions and shifts in power with more than weapons. You have eulogized tyrants with self-satisfied smirks. Try something that works.

 It's how I met Stephen Hendel, the producer I've teamed with to make sure this film gets made. Essentially, he'll raise what I don't. I'm asking for a fraction of the budget to get the ball rolling, because it's time. In these days it's a strange experience to build up loads of content and not share it.
