It’s Friday, and you know what that means. It’s time for FotoPhilm’s Short Film of the Week. I just recently watched this weeks short Film, and as soon as it was over, I knew I had to share it with all of you. This one is called Blinky, by Ruairi Robinson. It is a Science Fiction/Thriller Film, but there are a few Horror elements to it. Blinky takes place in the future, where mankind has created robot helpers to cook and clean for you, as well as play games. The little boy decides he wants one, thinking it will bring together his arguing parents. Overtime, he gets bored with the robot and annoyed that his family is still fighting. The boy starts to get mean towards the robot, and gives it commands that I’m sure he will regret. I’ll let you watch and find out what happens.
Blinky was very well done technically speaking. The visual effects were some of the best I’ve ever seen for a Short Film, and the acting wasn’t all that bad either. The writing and dialogue were very natural sounding, and the overall cinematography was great! I hope you enjoy this weeks Short Film.
