Genius 8 Minute Sci-Fi Short – ABE

Rob McLellan writes and directs this compelling short focusing on a robot programmed to love and what happens when that love isn’t returned.  It’s chilling, thought provoking and refreshing and totally worth the 8 minutes.

I love the psychotic C3P0/Kathy Bates from “Misery” mash up vibe.

Apparently this is going to become a feature film,  and could join the ranks of “Moon,” “Sunshine,” and “Twelve Monkeys” in the straight Sci-Fi category.  I’m also digging the actor’s voice who actually mo-capped his performance…very GLaDOS-y.  On a side note, if you watch the VFX breakdown I linked take note of the awesome job of color grading that was done…really nice.

Cheers!
