Dempsey Tillman has been in the industry for over ten years. He has worked on Spiderman 1, 2 and 3, Goosebumps, Fast and Furious and most recently Straight Outta Compton. His personal project is a sci-fi movie that explores a world where being in possession of a photo is punishable by death. This short film features Academy Award Nominee Edward James Olmos.
With over 350,000 views in the first seven days, this short film has become a social media phenomenon. Working with Jamie Walters, Jayden Kypri, and Anders Sundberg, Tillman shows us a society where private companies have taken over the government’s work. One boy can survive the death penalty if a salvager comes to his rescue. The underlying themes ask the audience to look past the ordinary to the extraordinary. The film has a lot of action and a thinking man’s plot.
The same fears that sent theatre owners running for extra security when Straight Outta Compton was released in theaters are at work in Tillman’s new film called “The Art of Human Salvage”. Tillman says, “if I was going to have any chance at really making it as a film director in Hollywood, I had to hang out with film directors. So I loaded up the rental truck with my wife and two cats and went on a journey from Michigan to Hollywood, California. I felt I had to learn from the best if I was going to have a shot.”
Not only did he get his shot, but he got a wonderful cast while making the film. Tillman encourages everyone to watch and comment on social media. His goal is to get over one million views as quickly as possible.
