This Mind-Bending Race Looks Like a Real-Life Video Game | Short Film Showcase ctm magazine

Blurring the lines between real life and fantasy, this death-defying drone film is an adrenaline-fueled adventure from start to finish. Daredevil stunt man Ilko Iliev sprints, leaps, and swims through a heart-pounding obstacle course as drone operator Marin Kafedjiiski captures the action from above. Shot in Bulgaria, the film creatively explores the country from a bird’s eye perspective—including mind-bending shots of famous sites like the abandoned communist monument at Buzludzha peak.

    So this is what itll be like in the future. The rich using A.I. to play with the lives of the poor. With chips implanted into innocent minds. Hearts weeping while the face smiles. And lies hijack voices.
