Sweet Short: Blinky

Blinky the robot from Ruairi Robinson's short film Blinky

Ruairi Robinson directed this short film.  Blinky is really something.  I love it.  The idea is that in the future we will all have robot helpers to help us with everything from cooking and cleaning to looking after our children for us.  The solution to all our problems.  But not everything can be fixed by technology.

Check it out.

While this concept has been done a million times over, I really like the approach here.  It’s a very human, emotional reason why Max wants the robot, which I very much appreciate.

The kid in the film is named Max Records.  He’s a fantastic young actor to watch, having already given wonderful performances in The Brothers Bloom and Where the Wild Things Are.
