It’s been nearly a decade since actor and filmmaker Young A. Lee relocated from his bearings here in New York City to Taiwan. He’s done a few television shows since then, while also developing his own sci-fi property, Raze Of The Cyborg.
Raze Of The Cyborg hails from Lee’s own independent production firm, Fluid Robot Studios, which is credited for the visual effects applied alongside Renavatio Studios for John Hsu’s multi-award winning 2019 survival horror, Detention, based on the 2017 RPG from Red Candle Games.
Lee stars in Raze Of The Cyborg, playing an assassin who fuses his body with cybernetic implants to hunt down human traffickers and rescue his girlfriend. The project also features action sequences by award-winning action director Scott Hung (The Scoundrels, Who Killed Cock Robin, We Are Champions), and is being billed as a proof of concept shortfilm for a hopeful feature.
Principal photography wrapped in 2017 before finalizing picture lock last summer, and with VFX, sound and colorization now in final stages. The first teaser has already gone live as of last year and if you’ve missed it, you’re encouraged to take a look below as it comes packed with some pretty bold, envelope-pushing substance. Viewer discretion advised, of course, as there’s a small stitch of nudity per the narrative.
Check out some stills below as well, and for all else, the project’s official Facebook page has good and plenty to tease the eyes.
