NewsOK video host Angi Bruss speaks with Oklahoma filmmaker Kyle Roberts and event coordinator Kerry Myers about Saturday’s Posthuman-Palooza, a mini music supporting Roberts’ local indie film “Posthuman.”
The fundraising event is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at the Myriad Gardens Water Stage, 301 W Reno Ave.
Singer-songwriter Ali Harter, one of the local musicians set to perform at the event, also plays in this video. Here is the excellent lineup for Saturday’s fest:
2pm Sugar Free Allstars
3pm Brianna Gaither
5pm Ali Harter
6pm The Grown Ups
7pm Mont Lyons
8pm Modern Rock Diaries
The tagline for the movie is “Five high school seniors are about to graduate… from the human race.” Here is the synopsis:
There’s a secret arms race that the public knows nothing about. It’s an arms race for human potential, as genetic engineers scramble to create the formula that will unlock “posthuman” powers. The first posthuman finds himself facing explosive consequences, as he can no longer control his powers. A reaction to those powers has a larger range than had anticipated, meaning five teens on a rock-climbing trip in the area receive a genetic boost beyond anything they’d ever imagined. The five race the clock to find out the secret of these powers, and to discover the true power that lies within themselves.
The Oklahoman’s own Features Editor Matt Price of Nerdage blog created the characters and situation, and then worked with Kyle, who is also a NewsOK videographer, on both the prequel comic and screenplay. “Ghost Rider” artist Javier Saltares created the prequel comic cover sketch art.
