Luke Scott is the son of Ridley Scott, who directed Blade Runner. Luke recently shot a long-short film (20 minutes), called Loom.

The film was constructed for 3D. It was designed to push the limits of the cameras exposure sensitivity and colour range, and shot completely in 4K format, in order to help showcase the prototype REDray 3D laser player.

It's a family movie. The Scott family, that is. It takes place in a dystopian future—where meat is grown in silos for human consumption and genetic modification is commonplace
and stars Giovanni Ribisi as a laboratory worker. The film aims for atmospherics and openly acknowledges a stylistic debt to Blade Runner

Very atmospheric and moving, but it comes across as self-important film making. A lot of the drama is a result of information being withheld from the audience. The real drama, of the created girl being imprisoned by her creator, and of her attempt at escape, is given such short shrift we don't even know the main character's motivations at the end.
