"The Old New World" (Photo-based animation project)

An absolutely fantastic work. Take a trip back in time to some major cities in the US, and how they looked, via a steampunk time machine. I would love to see a 'making of' video on this. The whole film is wonderful, but I especially love the effects used in the end credits.

"The Old New World" is a Photo-based animation project.

It's a travel back in time with a little steampunk time machine. The main part of this video was made with Camera projection based on photos.

Fantastic short film about the rise of robots. Gripping from the start, this short is actually a proof of concept, and hopefully it gets picked up for feature-length.

Synopsis: In the near future, sentient robots are targeted for elimination after they develop emotional symmetry to humans and a revolutionary war for their survival begins.

Starring Anton Yelchin and Rufus Sewell.

Dead Ahead

A wonderfully clever short film paying homage to the horror genre.

'Dead Ahead' is a postcard animation to the world of the horror movie genre. Our intrepid travelers head out into the wilderness on their road trip only to find one nightmare scenario after the other. With each step forward a new monster emerges paying homage to such classics as Friday the 13th, Jaws and Pet Sematary.

Thanks for watching!
