Directed and animated by Fede Alvarez.
Alvarez created this four minute, 48 second short film about a robot invasion through his commercial production house for under $500. There has been so much positive buzz around this video that Hollywood execs are begging for more. In fact, legendary director and writer Sam Raimi will be supporting Alvarez bring his creation to the big screen. That’s right–Alvarez has been given a one million dollar deal with Ghost House Pictures to live his dream, to bring crazy apocalyptic robots into our theaters. This potential success story reminds me of Neill Blomkamp’s story; he was discovered by Peter Jackson to make District 9 in a very similar way.
