Preceding the events of BioShock1 and 2, this short by Jared Potter gives a look at a very significant event in Rapture’s history. In the lowest parts of the city, a small group of splicers have something planned that will change the course of Andrew Ryan’s vision of utopia.
Potter says: “‘BioShock’ is one of those rare pieces of entertainment that stays with you. The story, the characters, the world created by the team at 2K and Irrational left an impression on me unlike any game Ive ever played. I was drawn immediately into the idea of making a fanfilm. Not a parody, not a fake trailer mashup of other people’s work, but a truly original creation set within the world of the games. I wanted to go there. I wanted to visit the city of Rapture, and that desire kept me going through the months of post-production. It has turned out to be one of the greatest experiences I’ve had working on a movie, and I hope to somehow get the chance to return.”
