Watch: JJ Palomo's Sci-Fi Short 'Keloid' with Badass Robot Armies
What if your only hope, was your own demise? Batten down the hatches before watching this. There's a sci-fi short film called Keloid (or K3loid) from JJ Palomo that is making its way around Hollywood. THR reports that Roy Lee has already partnered with IAM Entertainment to develop this into a feature, with an "expansive" take on the story we get in this 3-minute short. Set in Russia in the future, it's basically robots against robots and men in mech suits. The effects are by "Big Lazy Robot" VFX and its six-man crew, who worked on Carl Rinsch's short The Gift. This took two years to finish "with the purpose of giving free reign to the creative aspects of production that many times are so much missed." From now on, you are set free.
From Vimeo: In a not too distant future, societies of all countries come to rely on an intricate network of artificial intelligence devices designed to bring efficacy to man's life. Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A.I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority. As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers. "Keloid is not about robots, it is about men." Directed by JJ Palomo, music and sound design by Full Basstards, and effects work by Big Lazy Robot. For more info visit this site. How was that?
