Incognito is an upcoming 2019 animated dystopian horror film written and directed by Ashley J. Wilding. The film is set to become his second major independent film release since '2018: The Virus' at Cineworld Cinemas on October 12, 2015.

Incognito portrays as a retelling of a past event and how it shaped society for the future generation.
Plot[edit | edit source]
An anonymous terrorist organisation rise from the underground taking New York City by storm. A daunting and ferocious chain of events unfold resulting in a partial lockdown of the city to isolate and prevent further terrorist activity expanding across the city and possibly the United States. With a strict government deadline pressurising the New York City Police Department. Former Vietnam Veteran, Daniel Houston, is recruited for the most dangerous mission of his life. He must infiltrate and eliminate the masterminds holding their beloved city captive before stronger and deadlier forces intervene. Daniel must embark in a race against time for not only his freedom - but for his own survival and the survival of those hiding in fear. Accepting the risks and potentially deadly consequences; he must cross the blood-drawn line into enemy territory, alone, and without a guaranteed return to civilisation. He now stands above the law and must do whatever's necessary to get the root of the problem before the clock strikes zero. The battle for city's future must be fought within the dark and dystopian concrete jungle that was once considered their home.

Influences[edit | edit source]
1970's-1990's New York City Timeline
Prior to the drafting of our screenplay, a large portion of the story was based on real life political concerns and events that were occurring at that point in time. New York City became the perfect setting for the film through historical research and observing cinema's depiction on the city during that era with such films as Walter Hill's 1979 film The Warriors and John Carpenter's 1981 film Escape From New York. Solely based on research prior to the development of our screenplay, it was said that people who lived in New York City during that time were terrified to use the subways, terrified of being mugged outside their apartments, and there was an overwhelming tide of junkies. Thirty-one of every 100,000 New Yorkers were murdered each year, and 3,668 were victims of larceny.
Effects of The Vietnam War
During and following the end of the Vietnam War on April 30th 1975, many young men who fought in the Vietnam War had a great deal of difficulty readjusting to life in the United States. As a result, some struggled to overcome physical injuries, emotional problems, or drug addictions from their time in Vietnam. Others had trouble feeling accepted by their friends and families. Some returning soldiers blamed their situation on the antiwar movement and developed a deep resentment toward antiwar protestors. But many other veterans began to question the war and their own actions in it. Some people who opposed American involvement in the war treated U.S Soldiers and veterans very poorly. They tended to purely blame troops for the tragic situation in Vietnam, instead of blaming the government leaders who had sent them there. “Some protesters simply did not make a clear distinction between the war and those who fought it, and they regarded American soldiers as ready and willing killers.” which is explained in Christian G. Appy’s book Working-Class War: American Combat Soldiers and Vietnam. In some instances, antiwar protestors reportedly spat on returning veterans and called them ‘baby- killers’. Although such incidents were rare, the stories were often repeated among U.S Soldiers in Vietnam. Rather than being greeted with anger and hostility, however, most veterans received very little reaction when they returned home. They mainly noticed people seemed uncomfortable around them and did not appear interested in hearing about their wartime experiences. In other words, Society as a whole was certainly unable and unwilling to receive these men with the support and understanding they needed. The most common experiences of rejection were not explicit acts of hostility but quieter, sometimes more devastating forms of withdrawal, suspicion, and indifference.

Director Reviews[edit | edit source]
Reviews left by Cast Members on Ashley as the Creative Director.
“Ash was a great creative director with a real vision for his material. Ash was patient and gave enough detail about the scene and the character to ensure he got the best performance he could.
It has been amazing to see how Ash continues to evolve as a director and how much we have been able to learn together over this process. Ash fully committed to supporting the actors and providing necessary context and character dialogue when other performers were not available. Ash also encouraged us to embrace our characters and alter bits of dialogue to suit the scene and flow better.
I remain amazed at how Ash is able to keep track of everything and I am excited to see the final piece. Ash has created a comfortable and friendly environment to record lines and it has been a fun experience all round.
I appreciated the opportunity to be part of this film and look forward to possible future collaborations. I love the energy and passion Ash has bought to the project and he is always approachable and willing to listen to new ideas.
All round great director.
I would say an 8/10 and that is based on the fact you are still growing and learning”— Shana Roberts, Voice Actor of Skye
"I had the pleasure of working as a member of Ashley’s cast for his upcoming film project Incognito (2019). Passionate, dedicated and extremely creative, Ashley is among the most exciting independent directors that I have come across and I absolutely endorse his experience and skill set. I am very excited with the how far production of Incognito has come. With a very talented cast, I have no doubt the film will be nothing short of a success come it’s release later in 2019.— Josh Bell, Voice Actor
