Must Watch: Amazing Sci-Fi Short 'R´ha' Introduces Aliens vs Machine
"Initializing Motivation Protocol." Whoa. We've featured many weird and fascinating sci-fi shorts over the years, but nothing like this. Since debuting a few days ago, I've received numerous emails alerting me to this "amazing" new short titled R´ha, written & directed & created by 22-year-old Kaleb Lechowski. Part of the reason it's so brilliant is it has nothing to do with humans. It's about an alien being interrogated, dare I say
tortured motivated by a robot trying to acquire coordinates. It's chilling, but impressively well-made and plays like a great opener to a full feature film. No question Hollywood will be interested. Get it while it's hot!
"You are nothing!" Thanks to Ronny for the tip, hosted on Vimeo. R´ha is an animated science-fiction short movie created by Kaleb Lechowski during the first year of his studies. The only synopsis there is for this short: "A member of an alien race is being interrogated and tortured by a machine." All the work was done by Lechowski, except for the sound, by Hartmut Zeller, and the voice acting, by Dave Masterson. I love all the unique, original touches in this, it feels fresh though inspired by so much great sci-fi of the past.
