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….

Lights Out: The Little Robotic Guy Tries to Sleep

Lights Out: The Little Robotic Guy Tries to Sleep

Lights Out is a very wacky one-minute CG animated short created by Irish filmmaker Cormac Kelly.  The film follows the travails of a poor little robotic guy who’s trying to grab some shut-eye, but the factory around him suddenly springs to life.  A serious design flaw in the factory’s ergonomics prevents the poor guy from reaching the off-switch, and the rest is history!  This piece presents the original incarnation of the animation from Dublin’s Piranhabar reception desk, as well as a fantastic re-shoot of the animation that includes stereo sound effects.

The two animated shorts must be watched in HD Full-Screen Mode!
