Technotise is a Serbian science fiction comic album created by artist Aleksa Gajić and writer Darko Grkinić. The comic was adapted into animated feature film Technotise: Edit & I.

Creation and publication[edit]

Technotise was originally created in 1998 by artist Aleksa Gajić and writer Darko Grkinić, as Gajić's thesis on the Faculty of Applied Arts, University of Arts in Belgrade.[1] The story is set in the year 2074. Gajić stated that he chose that particular year because in 2074 he would be 100 years old.[2]

Technotise was originally published as a comic album in 2001 by Serbian publisher System Comics.[1] The album was promoted with an animated music video created by Gajić. The electronic music track, entitled "Bombona?" ("Candy?"), was composed by Gajić himself.[3] In 2009, System Comics reissued Technotise, the reissue featuring four bonus pages with the story of how Edit and her boyfriend Bojan met and several pages with Gajić's drawings and concept art.[4]

Plot[edit]

The story is set in 2074 Belgrade.[1] The main character is Edit, an art student.[1] She and her friends discover a legendary tunnel connecting Zemun and Kalemegdan, made during Ottoman–Habsburg wars.[1]

Animated film[edit]

In 2008, the comic book was adapted into an animated feature film Technotise: Edit & I.[2] Although based on the comic book, the film features a different plot.[2] In the film, Edit is a psychology student who, after failing the same university exam for the sixth time, decides to visit a dealer on the black market who installs a stolen military chip in her body that will record everything she sees to help pass the exam. The chip develops a parallel personality and affords Edit abilities greater than she ever imagined.[2]
