Luka Vukos’s award-winning short film Lose like a Human (2018) is now viewable on YouTube. It’s basically a two-hander, but with frills, on the subject of artificial intelligence, and well worth a watch and a thumbs-up. Click on the title image above.
Last weekend, the 19th and 20th May, the Hyperdrive Festival took place in Hailsham, Sussex. Twenty-five films were shown over the two days, including Lose Like a Human, written by Luka Vukos and Fergus Doyle, and directed by Luka Vukos. You’ll remember that we mentioned this project – Luka’s directorial debut – in an earlier update here.
Well I am delighted to say that the film won prizes at this festival, its first outing. Firstly DB Hews lifted the trophy for Best Original Score. Moreover the film won the Audience Choice Award! Very well done everyone!
I believe we won’t have to wait very long for the movie’s excellent music, written and played by DB Hews with vocals by Cara Lynch, to be available. Keep your eyes and ears open, because it’s beautiful.
More news about all this as and when it happens. I know that Luka’s mind is bubbling with ideas for future projects.
Lose Like A Human had a modest premier yesterday at the University of Edinburgh, before a small invited audience. Pictured below are director Luka Vukos and writer Fergus Doyle. We’re excited to hear that this short movie has been entered for several festivals.
