Indie Trailer Sunday: Sci-Fi Cyberpunk Animated Short 'ROSA' Trailer
Let the harvest begin. Today's indie trailer is actually for a short film that's receiving quite a bit of attention around the festival circuit. The short is titled ROSA and is an "independent sci-fi cyberpunk animated short-film" created entirely by young comic-artist Jesus Orellana with no budget during a single year. Yea, this has a bit of a machinama feel to it, but visually it looks stunning for just one person creating all of this on their own. The full short runs 10 minutes, but this is just a quick trailer. I'm personally not the biggest fan of the character design, but this short trailer impressed me enough to post today. Check it out!

Synopsis: In the near future, humanity has disappeared, leaving behind a large megalopolis devoid of natural life. From the destruction awakens ROSA, a robot in the KERNEL project, mankind's last attempt to restore the earth's ecosystem using recovered samples of long-extinct plant species. Wandering among the ruins of the lifeless city, Rosa soon discovers that she is not the only part of Kernel that has awakened.
ROSA is an independent animated short created entirely by comic artist Jesus Orellana. The short has played at the Sitges Film Festival, Screamfest, Los Angeles Shorts Fest and SIFF. It will be released online in November 2011 for free, so spread the word if you think it looks good! Visit their official site or Facebook.
