The Toronto Cybercide series of films began as a thought experiment in 2006, asking myself what kind of science fiction world could be constructed with the tools and talent available to me. After spending so long playing around in other continuities, we were hoping to bring back good writing to amateur sci-fi films. While the new crop are visual stunning there’s little for the modern genre-savvy fan base to sink their teeth into. The cyberpunk genre was chosen since it could both host a potentially deeply allegorical story as well as fantastical imagery and action. So Toronto Cybercide: Unified Cybernetics Foundation was developed to test our world building skills. The largest challenge was developing something that could satisfy a diverse sci-fi fan base. From the casual fan, cyberpunk purists, social science fiction analysts and anime otaku, we wanted to provide entertainment for each of these groups without pandering to the lowest denominator.
