Featured Sci-Fi Short: Tears of Steel [Video]

This 12-minute short film (which includes the credits) is quite a creative masterpiece. Created using Blender, an open source 3D content creation suite and crowdfunded from the Blender Institute in Amsterdam, it’s quite a feast for the eyes.

Without giving too much away, the story is centred on a man who is trying to make up with his robotic girlfriend that he wronged long ago. I really enjoyed watching it – the effects are actually pretty damned cool and while the story was simple (which is has to be for a 10-minute film) it unfolds at a great pace, which kept me engaged the whole way.

My only gripe is that I want more!

  1. Great animation. Too bad it is, well, the same story as presented in the Animatrix by the Wachowski Brothers.
    It is in fact so similar that I wonder if it won't get claims from them :S.

  2. Looks like the Wachowski brothers stole the idea of a robot-dominated future from Jack Williamson’s story “The Humanoids”, then.

    Seriously, how can you own an idea?
