Drone Short Film

This is an impressive little animated short film that should make you happy by the end. Drone is made by students from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Scotland. Set in a post-apocalyptic Scotland "when machines have taken over the cities and mankind has retreated to the forests", a young woman hunting for animals encounters an automated drone and figures out how to fight back. There's some refreshing optimism in this film, and it's inspired by Celtic culture. Not only does it reminds me of Studio Ghibli films, but there's a bit of Rey from The Force Awakens found in the main character. Worth a watch.

Thanks to Quiet Earth for the tip. Description from Vimeo: In a post-apocalyptic Scotland, when machines have taken over the cities and mankind has retreated to the forests in fear of the Drones, a young woman named Fia is on the hunt. While stalking rabbits, she encounters a Drone with one primary function: to seek and destroy humans. Drone is a student film made at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Scotland. The film was collectively made by Connie White, Vicky Stephen, Magda Radoch and Stephen McAdam. It features the song "Luaidh" by Niteworks. For more shorts, click here. Thoughts?

  • This is a Pokemon rip off. I hate Pokemon and all these debilitating japanimations.
    • Wha? Ranting about Pokemon?
      • ;D Ranting aside, Was it a proof of concept or a short film ? It felt too sketchy.
        • As mentioned in the post, it's a student film, so they made it just as a learning experience and probably put together as much as they could but it's not a pitch or anything else.
          • My bad then. I skimmed yor post. I have to work on this bad habit.

    This reminds of the old animation style from the cartoons on Newgrounds.
  • Love the power symbol as a tribal marking on the kid at the end!
