Two Short Robot Films

Sometimes when you come across something impressive, it's nice to share it.  This is one of those
Recently, I came across two video shorts on  The quality of the special effects is generally spectacular in both cases.  For those who prefer to be forewarned, both films contain varying degrees of violence. 

The first, Keloid, is like a preview for a dark and rough sci-fi film in which future police responsibilities are given to robots with artificial intelligence.  It appears that the intelligent robots have take matters into their own hands. What I like about it is the way the robots move -- both fluid and mechanical all at the same time.  It is just spectacular.  And the background music powerfully complements the imagery.
Watch it here.


The second short, The Gift, is a series of fast moving action scenes that has a more polished look than Koloid.  There's a lot of unanswered questions and intrigue built around this high velocity film: What's the unicorn and why does everyone want that box?  From the identification by way of saliva "fingerprint" on -- everything about this fast paced short makes you want to know more.
Watch it here.

The Gift

Koloid was uploaded about a week ago, and The Gift has been around for about a year.  I'd love to see both of them worked into feature length films. Congratulations to the creators of both of these projects for such quality work.
