Ghosts With Shit Jobs
In the future, jobs still suck - but in whole new ways. By 2040, the economy has flipped and North Americans are a cheap labour pool for wealthy Asian markets. A Chinese documentary show focuses on the "ghosts" (Cantonese slang for white people) unlucky enough to have been born into the slums of Toronto in a special report that translates as "Ghosts With Shit Jobs."

This lo-fi sci-fi mocumentary will be premiering at the Sci-Fi-London film festival. There are also screenings booked in Berlin and Toronto

Check out the trailer or watch the first 20 minutes of the film.
Role: Visual Effects Supervisor

well, the kickstarter campaign has been going really well, but I have no idea it they'll get as far as that. There are digital download options there, though.

Update: The world premiere in London played to a full house, and went over really well! Next screening is in Berlin on the 10th, and then it will be playing in Toronto on the 30th.

tickets for the Toronto show can be bought here

If you see the film, keep an eye out for the little metafilter reference that I dropped into one of the scenes
