Delilah catches her boyfriend cheating on her the day they are to become engaged. She becomes consumed by the tragedy, only comforted by an A.I. system that is ingrained within her. The A.I. presents her with a choice: to continue living her life of despair, or live forever in a "perfect-world."

Mission Statement

More and more, we use technology and social media to distract ourselves from confronting reality. As our team reflects on 2020 and move forward into 2021, we want to tell an impactful story of comfort and hope that explores the pain of isolation and the need for connection.

The Story

If you were given the option to live in a world that is custom-tailored to your idea of perfection, would you? Instinctively, most of us would answer this question by saying "no." However, in many ways, we are already trying to live in a perfect world. We escape through social media and video games that put us in a different reality. We indulge in alcohol and drugs which alter our state of being. We are trying to live in our idea of perfection constantly. This film explores this never-ending quest to reach perfection and the role that technology can serve in this quest.



This film features Delilah, a young woman who spends her time in and out of an augmented reality. So wait, what is this... augmented reality? Well, it all begins with our A.I. character, ASTER. ASTER is an A.I. system ingrained in all humans in this world. It acts as an extension of one's brain, evolved to the point where it has the capabilities to manipulate an individual's reality. Curious as to how the presence of ASTER affects Delilah and her relationships? Or how we will bring the character of ASTER to life? Or even the extent in which ASTER can manipulate a person's world? Then please help us get this film made! Check out all the ways that you can contribute:



We are not asking for a donation. We are asking to COLLABORATE. Filmmaking IS a costly process though, so PLEASE consider supporting this film financially. But regardless, support can come from anywhere, even just by watching the final film! We want YOU to be part of our team. Our goal is for you to believe in this project as much as our amazing cast and crew does!

So, with that being said, what separates this film from others that you may have seen? It's the people behind it. We believe in the story that we are telling whole-heartedly. But, the story means nothing if our team can't bring it to life. Every person working on this film is hungry to make a true impact through their art. We have all been working tirelessly thoughout our careers to sharpen our skills, all in hopes to make a film that is able to stand out and make a difference -- especially in these trying times. We believe that this is the film that will do so. So again, we ask that you join this team of hardworking people so that we can all be contributors in telling the story of "After Tomorrow."

Filmmaking is unpredictable -- but somehow, some way, everything comes together in the end with the right people behind it.
