TV Drama, 2018
Milk created the visual effects for episode seven of Skydance/Netflix adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s seminal cyberpunk thriller Altered Carbon.
Set 500 years in the future, the 10-part series takes place in a world where the human consciousness can be stored digitally—allowing the wealthy to live forever as they download themselves into new bodies.
The story follows a revolutionary-turned-P.I. named Kovacs, played by both Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine) and Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad), who finds himself uploaded into the “stacks” and downloaded into a new body against his will centuries later to solve the murder of the former body of a billionaire.
Altered Carbon premiered on Netflix on February 2nd 2018.
