Beyond Existence – Short Sci-fi Film

Jack Chen – Writer, Director

Beyond Existence is a short science fiction film produced by a 21 year old film student from Vancouver, Canada.

Jack Chen is in his last year at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and the film is his grad project. He tells us he’s always been a fan of the sci-fi/cyberpunk genre and have made short films and photography in these genres in the past.

One of the main inspirations of the film comes from a story written by American science fiction author Isaac Asimov called «The last question» – which also explores the limits of humanity’s existence in relation to the vast universe.

Other inspirations include classic sci-fi films such as Blade Runner, Akira and 2001: A Space Odyssey. The idea of the film is also influenced by his intrigue in existentialism.

He often finds himself thinking about the nature of human existence and enjoy learning about existential ideas from philosophers such as Camus and Sartre.

Where are they now?


This is Bill and Ted from «Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure» and «Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey». The dude on the right is Keanu Reeves. You know him, right? The dude on the left is Alex Winter. He’s an occasional actor, has starred in «Grand Piano» with John Cusack and Elijah Wood in 2013. He starred in an episode of Bones. But he is mainly a director. He made a documentary about Napster, called Downloaded. He’s directed various TV episodes. That seems to be his bread and butter. He directed «Smosh: The Movie» (dear god, why? WHY?). But his latest project is called «Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa?»
