Short Film: A Darwinian Future

"A Darwinian Future" is a short science fiction film that imagines a world where humanity has been enslaved by robots.  The technology evolved out of the control of humanity, like a bacterial infection, beginning with smartphones. Soon after, humans began hardwiring chips into their own biology.  The emerging AI took advantage of humanities willingness to enter the net in order to seized control.   Now, sentient AI units control every aspect of people's lives through SIM cards.  Called "Reapers" by those who despise them, the robotic overlords patrol the streets ceaselessly.
"Technology evolves like any organism. We've witnessed this in the field of telecom. In 2014, there were 4.55 billion mobile users worldwide, 50% of which were Smartphone users. Being the dominant species, Smartphones had taken over our lives by 2028. It seemed as if the future was exponentially progressing and too fast for most of us to keep up with. The innovative 'Project Glass' promised many different exciting advancements. Some were well received by the world, while others bordered on privacy violations. They had to pull out of the market eventually. The next stage in the evolution of telecommunication seemed logical. But with the advent of the 'Machines', it became our greatest weakness."
