Cool Videos: Ruairi Robinson's evil robot short Blinky

If the mascot of JJ Abrams' production company Bad Robot got his own short film, it might look something like "Blinky" a short film by Ruairi Robinson. In the short, which stars Max Records (WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE), a wealthy family buys Blinky, a robot that's meant to help out around the house and, seemingly, provide some companionship for the young son. But if TOY STORY has taught us anything, it's that kids don't always treat their toys very well. But Blinky takes it a little differently than Woody or Buzz Lightyear...

Robinson is a director once attached to AKIRA at Warner Bros. and most recently THE ANIMATORS. I'd imagine with "Blinky," a wonderfully twisted little short, he'll start getting himself a lot more offers for work. Check out the short below...

Robinson shows great promise

It reminded me a bit of Neil Blomkamps's short, Tempbot (also about a robot). Robinson is obviously technically skilled but he also seems to understand pathos and suspense. He could have a really interesting career

Creepy, scary and menacing without having to resort to gore-porn. Nice work!

Yes!

ANOTHER great short by the super talented Ruairi!!! Keep an eye on this guy...he's already had one Oscar nom.

I really love this Max kid, I hope he sticks with it and doesn't get screwed by an evil agent or family member.

Lets have a drink or two when we're in LA shooting the opening of Bright White Hearts this summer Mr. Robinson!! Congrats and good work.

So good, I couldn't finish. I know where it's going and just don't think I can handle it. The fans of the genre will definitely love it.
