For those who've seen Ruairi Robinson's awesome post apocalyptic short Silent City you're in for a little treat.. he just dropped me a line to let me know his latest short, BlinkyTM which we reported on all the way back in 2009, is now online in its entirety.

Ruairi is also currently working on a scifi feature called The Animators which tells the story of a group of astronaut explorers who succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force. Finally, a feature!

This is an excellent short. Not only as a dire prophecy about the consequences of mistreating your creations, but also as a wonderful allegory for the decay of the nuclear family in the western world.

Throughout this film, the character I have to say I felt to most sympathy for was Blinky. He's a wide-eyed innocent who desperately wants to be loved an accepted, only to be tormented by psychotic humans until he finally snaps. I think we've all been in that position at one time or another in our lives.

tl;dr Great short

Love the premise, fantastic production values, but ultimately feels a little too simplistic, too contrived.

I don't know, maybe I'm expecting too much of a short, or RR, but:

[SPOILER]

Having the big reveal spouted through a couple of lines, instead of using a visual storytelling device to convey it left me disappointed.
