‘Archetype’ Battle Robot Short Film, or the Best 7 Minutes I’ve Spent on YouTube All Year

The best way to describe Archetype is District 9 meets Blade Runner. In a lot of ways it’s very reminiscent of Neill Blomkamp’s original District 9 short film as well, and I could easily see this getting picked up and expanded to feature length. In any case it would make for a great KickStarter campaign video (hint hint). I would definitely go out to see this. The movie’s technically only five minutes, the last two being credits, but if you keep watching they do feature some cool concept art.

Here’s some words from Archetype creator and director Aaron Sims…

This project was a labor of love, and so many talented, hard-working people helped in making it come to life. “Archetype” would not have been possible without all the talented individuals who contributed their time and skill, and I thank them – each and every one.

Please tell everyone you know to watch the short; the more people and positive responses we receive (and even likes on the YouTube page that we get) make a difference. With your help, we can hopefully get the feature version made – so Tweet, Facebook…get the word out!
