Watch: 'Blade Runner'-Esque 'Thousandth Street' Sci-Fi Short Film

Another stand out futuristic sci-fi short film to feature today, this one called Thousandth Street, that definitely has a Blade Runner-esque vibe to it. The six minute short is a creation of four filmmakers from the ArtFX school in France, and introduces us to a police officer (with glowing eyes that must indicate he's a robot/android) on routine patrol. I love the style, I love how much of the story is conveyed through visuals and without any actual dialogue, I love the visual effects and overall look of it. I want to see an entire movie set in this world with these kind of characters (which I'm sure is the intention behind this anyway). Enjoy!
Original synopsis for Thousandth Street from Vimeo: The break of a police officer on patrol is suddenly interrupted by an unexpected event which he will have to face… The credits for Thousandth Street list four directors (réalisateurs): Alexis Amant, Jérémy Nguyen, Ghali Ouazzany and Maxime Servoise. The music is by Perturbator. The visual effects and other work was done by the four directors at ArtFX, "l'école des effets spéciaux et du cinéma d'animation 3D" or the "school [for] special effects and 3D animation" located in France. For more info on the short film visit their Facebook. This was entertaining. Thoughts?
