Synthia – The Movie

From IMDB: “Vienna, near future. Every household is supported by a personal assistant robot called Synthia, built by techgiant ENYO. The robot is equipped with a neuronal network and has access to all electronic devices.

After a defective update of her Synthia, architect and workaholic Pez has an ENYO technician take a look at the robot, only to find out other Synthias are also malfunctioning. Since Pez is dependent on Synthia to assist her in calculations, she ignores the technician’s advice to unplug the robot. In playful banter with her boyfriend Chris, Pez asks Synthia to murder Chris. Little does Pez know Synthia will do anything to do her bidding“.

Upon hearing of this project I immediately jumped at the chance to work again with Director team Maria Hinterkörner and Bernhard Weber (Wirviert Films). I met Synthia, the animatronic actress back in 2017: built by Philipp Erkinger and Christoph Dafert for an exhibition, the film grew out of a script by Maria, who together with Bernhard quickly assembled a crew of industry professionals based in Vienna. Together with a fantastic cast and post production magic, the film paints a thrilling yet bleak view of the near future.

The score was produced in Musitecture studios and also Noisia Studios (Tullnerbach), with the assistance and co-composing talents of Andre Schwarz. The score was mixed by Kurt Richter at Musikzimmer Wien. The film was completed on schedule and is currently enjoying a successful run of the independent film festival circuit.
