Check out Ruairi Robinson’s latest – The very twisted short film ‘Blinky’!
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
We are loving 'Blinky', Ruairi Robinson's amazing new short
film! Dark and twisted, even the strap line sends shivers - 'Soon
every home will have one. Don't worry. It's safe...'
Staring Max Records (Where Wild Things Are) the film
enters the world of a young boy, unhappy at home with warring
parents who buy him a 'Blinky' robot to keep him company. All
is well at first but as the boy grows tired of 'Blinky' and starts
to mistreat him, 'Blinky' becomes more and more sinister - a
psychopathic Wall-E! So Toy Story this is not.
With his usual high production values and darkly comic style,
the twisted and increasingly creepy 'Blinky' keeps you transfixed
until the very end credits roll. We love it!
Ruairi is no stranger to darkly humorous films with his 'Fifty Percent Grey'
nominated for a Best Short Animated Film Oscar and his recent live
action short 'Silent City'.
