The Brothers Rapture is a BioShock-Inspired Short Film
BioShock is a game that has managed to inspire a ton of creative endeavors, ranging from illustrations and music to comprehensive cosplay depicting the game’s various characters, like the Big Daddy and the Little Sister.
A group of Toronto film students have come up with a rather impressive trailer for an upcoming short film, which offers a glimpse into the underwater city of Rapture, the setting in which all of the game takes place.
It’s called The Brothers Rapture, and it tells the tale of two brothers who travel to the city of rapture to develop their art. Along the way, they sacrifice their artistic integrity by embracing the miracle of plasmids.
Check out the trailer below.
Here’s the plot, in their own words:
“Before the underwater city of Rapture collapsed beneath itself and Splicers roamed its flooded halls, men and women thrived as they explored beyond the limits of their creative and scientific achievements. But who were they before their society crumbled around them?
“Return to a corner of Rapture to uncover the story of the brothers Charles and Arthur as they come to realize the true cost of art and power without boundaries.”
The film was fully funded by an IndieGoGo campaign and is set to go live on May 13.
