Life Tracker

Synopsis: Dillon stumbles on a little known news story about a company called Life Tracker Limited, which claims it has discovered a way to predict biological events in a human's life by looking at their DNA. Everyone views the story as a modern day form of palm reading that will go nowhere, but Dillon keeps turning on his camera when he finds articles on the Internet or hears about it on the news. The story keeps getting bigger. People all over the world are paying tons of money to see if their DNA shows any trace of disease, or future children, or when they'll die. With little to no resources, Dillon is left to guerilla style street interviews and filming the reactions of his small group of friends. When Dillon, his best friend Scott, and Scott's girlfriend Bell all get their futures predicted their lives start to change... along with the world itself. Nothing is physically changed in any single person's day-to-day life, but the ideas that have been put in people's heads convince them to flip

We've been in Utah

for a couple of weeks now,

but it's just a stopover.

But it sure is beautiful

up here.

I don't know if this

probably doesn't do it justice,

but there's 11 of us now,

which is good.

We broke down the campsite

this morning

and we're about to

hike off the Mountain.

It's taken me a lot longer

to get this done

than I ever expected,

but here it is.

Enjoy.

Excuse me, sir, ma'am.

I was wondering if by any

chance you heard of a company

called life tracker limited?

It's okay if you haven't.

I read about them

on the Internet.

I'm just out asking people

what they might think about...

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Sorry, no English.

Hi, I was wondering

if I could ask your opinions

about a news story

I read today?

When in Rome, right?

Absolutely.

On the news.

Excuse me, ladies.

Have you by any chance

heard of a company

called life tracker limited?

Have you heard that

a company called life tracker

thinks they can use DNA

to predict the future?

This is the palm reading

of the 21st century.

I mean it could be possible.

Wait, am I supposed to look

at you or the camera?

Wait, what are you asking?

Oh, sure.

They've been looking at

people's DNA for years

to try to stay ahead of anyone

that poses a threat

to the political machine.

They say they can analyze

a strain of DNA sort of like

a timeline.

I'm not really comfortable

with the...

What if knowing your future

could change it?

Like in back to the future?

You know how easy it is

to get DNA nowadays?

I mean from like

a discarded cup

from a fast food joint

or hair or...

Period blood.

Good one, honey.

Dad.

You're implying

that someone is doing tests

on used hygiene products?

Not just someone.

The president.

But if your DNA knows

your future then it would have

already factored in

that you found out you future.

Is it hard to make a movie?

Now, son,

what did I say about

talking to strangers?

Not after you learn how.

How can I learn how?

If you know you know

and you can't change it.

If all of a sudden aliens

came out of the sky

it would change how people

thought about things,

which would lead to change.

Do you have a camera at home?

Yeah, I've got a camera.

Uh-uh.

No, you know what?

I think we've had just about

enough of this interview.

Is this going to be

on TV somewhere?

I came across

a news story I thought

was pretty interesting.

So, I decided to go down to

Hollywood boulevard

and shoot a little,

just play around.

I thought maybe I'd get a

reaction from somebody who...

Hey, Dillon.

Hey, dil.

What are you shooting?

Just an intro

for some interviews I did.

It's going to look like crap

with you shooting it

all by yourself.

Ohh, hello beautiful.

Get that out of here.

Just take my help.

I'm here.

I'm already framed up.

All right?

Action.

I'm Dillon Smith

and this morning

I read an article

about a company

that says they can use DNA

to predict the future.

So, I'm headed down

to Hollywood boulevard

to see what people think.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Dillon,

we're so proud of you, honey.

It was good, buddy.

But if you want someone

with a little charisma

to host your documentary ideas

there's always me,

Scott orenhauser.

'Cause you have charisma

pouring out of your veins.

You know it, you know it.

Bye, Dillon.

Catch you later, dil.

We're proud of you, honey.

Later, guys.

so, Scott is always

talking about this grant

that they give

to documentary filmmakers.

It's called the clemens grant

and it's a big cash prize

and tons of sponsored equipment
