Fantastic Short Film Friday - Ruin (animated)

And we are back with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.

I'm on vacation right now traipsing around Europe, but I still didn't want to leave our listeners and readers without any content so I'm going to keep this post short and sweet. Do you like videogames? Do you like brilliant animated cgi sequences where you marvel at the spectacle of it all? Do you like cryptic post-apocalyptic parables? Well this short is the one for you. Here is the 8-minute animated action short Ruin from filmmaker Wes Ball.

It took 2-years for Ball to make this short, and you can see all the love and care that went into it. This one's a post-apocalyptic short where nature has reclaimed her home and robots hunt humans. Why? What happened? I don't know, but Bell promises a sequel at the end that will leave watchers salivating for the wait.

Check this out if you like beautifully animated films. Check this out if you need your sc-fi fix and want to see a beautiful world changed forever. Enjoy this weeks dose of short film goodness with Ruin.
