Video short film "Dr Easy" ~ Adapted from The Science Fiction Novel "The Red Men". Directed by Jason Groves, Richard Kenworthy and Christopher Harding (Warp Films and Film4) with Cinematography by Barry Ackroyd. Starring Tom Hollander with Geraldine James

Short Film "Dr. Easy" AI medical robot Dr. Easy, programmed for compassion in a story set against a pervasive and Orwellian vision of contemporary society: surveillance, automation, biotechnology, and their implications for our humanity. 

Adapted from Matthew De Abaitua’s novel "The Red Men". The film has been written and directed by Jason Groves, Chris Harding and Richard Kenworthy (Shynola). Michael (Tom Hollander) is a broken man with a gun, surrounded by armed police. A robot with a medical degree is dispatched – but can it save him? Holed up in the siege house, armed with a double barrel shotgun, his tongue shot out by snipers, Michael’s only hope of escaping this deadly situation lays in the metallic hands of the film’s titular android. 

Featuring cinematography by Barry Ackroyd "The Hurt Locker", "United 93" and visual FX by Jellyfish (Jonah), directorial collective Shynola (Jason Groves, Richard Kenworthy and Christopher Harding) continue the excellent work already created for musicians Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age and Radiohead with this visually rich, conceptually dark short backed by Warp Films and Film4

This short acts as a prologue for a planned feature adaptation of the De Abaitua cult dystopian novel.
