Award-Winning Director Dempsey Tillman Releases a New Short Film, The Art of Human Salvage

In The Art of Human Salvage, the world has changed. The government has been replaced by the Corporation and free expression is outlawed. A ten-year old boy, Dominik, played by newcomer Jayden Kypri, has been arrested for printing photographs. His only savior, a Salvage Officer named Blair, played by Jamie Walters (Beverly Hills 90210, The Heights), who struggles with his own secrets. Dempsey Tillman, who directed Collector (2008) and worked on films such as Spider Man and The Avengers, bring the film to Vimeo, Facebook, and YouTube.

“The Art of Human Salvage is a taste of a reality that everyone dreads and many people believe is already here. With a steampunk sense of technology and the gritty dirtiness of a Philip K. Dick movie (Blade Runner, Johnny Mnemonic), this is ten minutes that leave you wanting more.” – Bob Peryea, Movie Review, All That Entertains

The film stars Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Matthew Boylan (24, Straight Outta Compton), and Amanda Maddox (Hazard Jack, 15 Minutes of Shame). Written by Ted Dewberry, author ofPolybius, has created dystopian society that is futuristic, but hauntingly familiar.

“When I met Ted and we started talking about this film, I knew that this was the right film for me to direct. The message is clear: Beware of allowing the wrong people to take over your country. You could lose far more than you ever imagined.” – Dempsey  Tillman, Director, The Art of Human Salvage
