A Twisted, Psychopathic Bloody-Evil Tale Wins 2012 Vimeo Film Festival Award

Blinky™: A Twisted, Psychopathic Full-Evil Bloody Robot

Soon every home will have a robot helper. Don’t worry. It’s perfectly safe.”

Blinky™, a wickedly evil 3D-CG animated short horror film by the Irish filmmaker Ruairi Robinson, won The Best Narrative Film/Video Award (live-action narrative fiction told through the medium of film/video) last week at The 2012 Vimeo Festival +Awards. Previously, Robinson broke through to great acclaim with his 3D short film, Fifty Percent Grey, which was nominated for an Oscar in 2002 and followed it up in 2006 with The Silent City, a post-apocalyptic short film starring Cillian Murphy.

Blinky™ is shot with visual execution that is truly masterful, and the story is as bloody creepy as it gets. The amazing thirteen-minute short film stars Max Records from Where The Wild Things Are and tells the story of an angst-ridden young boy, who is trapped in a well-to-do, yet toxic home environment where his parents are constantly fighting. For Christmas he requests and gets Blinky™, the latest robot friend/home helper. But will the twisted and increasingly sinister Blinky™ actually turn out to be the true friend the distraught boy desperately wants and needs? Well, so sadly, very probably not….

Impossible Present is a charming, beautifully executed one-minute holiday 3D-CG animated short film by LA-based Royale Studios. Have you ever spent time trying to open a plastic package that was sealed tightly shut, you know the ones I’m talking about? They usually contain an ultra cool, little electronic device in an impenetrable plastic casing that, more often than not, draws blood before you’re finally able to enjoy the gadget inside. This little film features an original CG character who is trying desperately to get his Christmas present open. It turns out to be the impossible present…impossible to open!

Hambuster: The Bloody Revenge of Crazy-Mad Hamburgers!!

Hambuster: The Bloody Revenge of Crazy-Mad Hamburgers!!

Holy $%*&@!!! Supinfocom, the famous French animation school, has given us some ridiculously fun and outrageous student short films, but Hambuster may just take the prize as the most gleefully bugnuts of them all!

Hambuster is a wickedly funny six-minute 3D stereoscopic short film, co-directed by five students from Supinfocom Arles. 
Now, anyone who spends time eating their way around restaurant-obsessed America knows that when it comes to food, we are now living in a brave new burger world. America is awash in hamburger options, from business-lunch burgers, to chic nightclub sliders, to great hamburger creations to eat while you sit on a bench in the park, or even better, delicious burgers delivered piping-hot right to your seat while you watch a ballgame.

Maybe today you just might like having yourself a good juicy hamburger for lunch, while sitting in a peacefuly quiet place in the neighborhood park. But what if your lunch doesn’t like that idea at all, goes absolutely crazy-mad and decides to attack you? Out in the street everyone can hear your loud and bloody screams, but honestly who cares?

Hezarfen: A Turbulently Thrilling Saga of the Astonishing Feat of First Human Flight

Hezarfen: A Turbulently Thrilling Saga of the Astonishing Feat of First Human Flight

Hezarfen is a joyously slapstick three-minute 3D animated short film by Tolga Ari, Romain Blanchet, Chung-Yu Huang and Rémy Hurlin, who are recent graduates of Supinfocom Arles. The film takes place in 1632 in Turkey and presents the trials and tribulations of Hezarfen, a citizen of Istanbul who folklore credits with having attempted to make the first human flight with artificial wings in the history of aviation. Legend claims that Hezarfen actually took off from atop the 183-foot tall Galata Tower near Bosporus and landed successfully at Uskudar, almost 3 miles away from the Galata Tower.

This film focuses primarily on how Hezarfen managed to jump from that lofty, truly sky-high tower. As he prepared to jump and launch into flight, a large crowd of townspeople stopped their work to gaze up at the tower, watching with astonishment at the sight of Hezarfen perched on top with flimsy wings attached. In short order, many of them ended up actually getting drawn into the breath-taking drama, as an unforeseen chain of events rapidly began to unfold. The initially courageous-seeming undertaking soon became a turbulently comical misadventure, a wacky escapade that demonstrates the high price imposed by attempts to execute schemes that are really peculiar and strange. Such offbeat strivings for bizarre pioneering achievement can so quickly degenerate into absurdly sparkling calamity.
