Gorgeous Rosa: Cyborg Fights for Survival in Astounding Cyberpunk Animation

Rosa is an epic sci-fi cyberpunk animated short film by the young comic-artist Jesús Orellana, which was created entirely by Orellana with no budget during a single year. Since its world premiere at the 2011 Seattle International Film Festival, Rosa has been an official selection at film festivals around the world and currently is in development to become a live-action motion picture.

Rosa takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all forms of natural life have disappeared. From the destruction awakens Rosa, a gorgeous cyborg deployed from the Kernel Project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. The film follows the brief life and bloody death of the beautiful Rosa, who soon learns that she is not the only entity that has awakened and wanders through the dystopian steampunk landscape, scanning the strange frontier for danger as she fights for her survival.

The Incident at Tower 37: An Epic Battle Over Water

The Incident at Tower 37: An Epic Battle Over Water

The Incident at Tower 37 is an animated short film written and directed by animator Chris Perry, within the collaborative animation curriculum at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. The ten-minute HD animated short is a sci-fi film with a message, which was released this week in honor of World Water Day. The film tells the story of a battle over water, between a corporation that dries up a waterbody and the ecosystem that’s being destroyed. Tower 37 is siphoning every drop of water from a once-pristine lake, that is, until the station’s steward realizes that it is slowly destroying an entire ecosystem.

Perry notes that The Incident at Tower 37 is highly allegorical: “The film tells the story of one person’s transition from ignorance to awareness. Tragically, it happens too late to save them. But it shows we have the capacity to understand our broader impact on the world and, ultimately, do something about it. My personal hope is that we all recognize the ticking clock and act responsibly sooner rather than later.”

Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer

Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer

Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer is a  sparkly futuristic, wild and wacky eight-minute short film by writer/director/producer Andrew Jones, winner of the Best Short Award at the Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival and the much coveted Brown Jenkin Award at the 2010 Hp Lovecraft Film Festival.

The time: The Future.  The place: Neo-Ultra-Mega-Tokyo.  Or maybe the time and place are really somewhere in a dark and dangerous back alley.  In this shimmering, shiny-yet-grimy world we discover Holly Malone, a reporter with ten times the daring and audacious spunk of the old Lois Lane, along with a powerful uterus for the news.  Her reporter instincts plus a very peculiar sense of taste has set her on the trail of the city’s legendary drug lord, Frank DanCoolo.  He’s the source of paranormal drugs which are ravaging society, that is if he really exists.  Molly is sure he does, and her journey to find DanCoolo leads her to unknown realities, terrifying secrets, flying katanas and some really righteous dope.

She Farted and Created the World!

She Farted and Created the World!

She Farted and Created the World is a curiously humorous two-minute animated short film by animator/creator Scott Coello, which was shortlisted for the 2009 Virgin Media Shorts Awards.  A big puppy farts, and lo, a whole new universe is born, setting into motion an unprecedented cycle of evolution.  Yes, it turns out to be the Red Queen Model of co-evolutionary interaction, which holds that the struggle for existence never eases up, so that no species ever pulls ahead for long.  The music is provided by a band named Son of Robot.

Burden: A Lone Man’s Defiant Battle to Save Earth

Burden: A Lone Man’s Defiant Battle to Save Earth

Burden is a widely acclaimed, spectacular short film directed by Michael David Lynch, a seven-minute film that looks just like a big-budget, popcorn-selling, comic-inspired, extravaganza blockbuster.  Burden follows the exploits of a super-powered “Watcher” named Calik, who was sent to Earth some forty years ago to observe the growth of our young species.  He’s informed that an alien race called the Cythorians is en-route to destroy Earth and finds himself torn between his sworn duty to leave Earth and allow the world to fall, or to defy his orders by remaining to fight in what seems like a futile battle to save the planet.
