  1. It's not no budget, just no backing. Self funded is very different from no budget, especially when you're a VFX studio to start with. Still cool though.

  2. How I wish that Syfy, rather than making more Mega-Croco-Shark-asaurus movies, would look at YouTube for brilliant pieces like this and fund them.

  3. Knowing this is a no budget film makes district 9 and skyline look,,,,, well to be perfectly honest like a child had written and directed them, get Archetype out there.

    • Stolen? Not really… If you check the source of the youtube video on the site, it is the same one that is embedded in this post. So no, not stolen at all.

    • Someone here must work for the MPAA, if you think that linking ot something is stealing it. Especially with full credit to the content creator…

  4. No budget doesn't mean that no money was spent -Aaron Sims has the resources. And probably the reputation to get the feature film made, if there is interest. A short like this is the perfect way to get the interest built. And thetiltedshelf, that's why it was posted on YouTube -to get seen by as many people as possible. I would LOVE to see the whole story!

  5. Wow! That was awesome! They need to make it into a full-length movie, as quick as possible! When it went to credits, I was sure I hit something I wasn't supposed to, cause I wanted to see more story! Fantastic job!

  6. it was good but why were the robots fighting a bunch of dweebs? Hardly need robots to shoot college kids. Seems like a waste of company R&D!

    All in all blew me away, really good.
