A bit of history on the project
Machete Girl began as a cyberpunk magazine publication in 2010. In 2012 we began work on a promotional web series which was to help establish the unique world of Machete girl for the fans. While the magazine continued through to today, the series took a back seat until January 2020. “Machete Girl” is a metaphor for “Hacker Girl” and is the Virtual Reality avatar of Chloe Raynor.
Set in a cyberpunk dystopian future Machete Girl has a strong female lead, fighting against all odds as a hacker, while maintaining her cover as a wealthy low level political figure.
It’s Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, meets Alias, meets Terminator, the Sarah Connor Chronicles
MAIN CHARACTER CHLOE RAYNOR
Chloe is a wealthy aspiring low level politician by day who quietly fights for the rights of citizens in the back benches of the world congress. By night she is a legend in the hacking community under the alias Machete Girl.
What are we looking for?
We are looking to partner with companies such as visual effects studios and VOD distribution channels to get our 10 minute pilot made which we will then pitch as a series.
