Welcome to Tribbles and Trilobites Episode 0227, my name is Troy Bernier, and the topic will be the wonderfully made short film Neon.  This captivating film is being described as a Fantasy Sci-Fi thriller.  With hints of inspiration from Philip K Dick, Ridley Scott, early Wachowski's Works, and the list goes on.

If you are a fan of Blade Runner, or of some of the recent bandwidth busting Marvel series masterpieces such as Luke Cage, DareDevil or Iron Fist you must not miss Neon.  It was shot entirely within the vast city of London, England.

The lead characters Joe Absolom (most known for Eastenders and his recent work Doc Martin) and Kerry Bennett (from Hollyoaks and Casualty) do an impressive job and will keep you engaged in the story.

This episode we have Mark J Blackman director who will tell you that Neon is a culmination of his decades of experience.  We also have Roxee Holman, the film's producer.  Their production company, the Joker's Pack has an impressive range of expertise in the international film industry, and we are honored to have them here with us.  Alright, let's dive in.
