Watch: David Weinstein's Incredible Sci-Fi Robot Short Film 'Envoy'
"You don't even know what it's capable of! Or what it's doing." Wow - this is one of the best shorts I've seen in a while - David Weinstein's Envoy, uploaded to his Vimeo recently. Stellar VFX combined with an emotional, compelling story - a kid and his robot, think Transformers with a little The Iron Giant. And I love that it goes all out, never shying away from showing the robot and some awesome action scenes, and it follows through until the very end. Envoy is under 10 minutes and is worth a quick watch, it's refreshing to see something so good for a short film like this. Someone let this guy make a movie, I don't want this to end.
"Details" on the short from Vimeo: "Science fiction, action adventure, short film to be used as a proof of concept for a larger full-length feature film story. A young boy discovers a deadly alien creature and winds up entangled in a top secret government operation." Envoy is written & directed by VFX artist/filmmaker David Weinstein (his official site), produced by David Weinstein, Mariam Price & Adam Coggin, featuring music composed by Edwin Wendler. The cast includes Will Spencer, Jayson Ziegenhagen and Elijah Allan-Blitz. For more details, head to the short's Vimeo page or official site located at: envoyfilm.com. Thoughts?
