This is a re-cut version of my animation festival award winning short "The Future of Art" (SlamDunk film festival, 2001 Park City, Utah). I edited about 5 minutes from the original.
This short film was originally created in 2000 on a 750 mhz PC. I had saved some money and spent about six months in my basement putting it all together. I was experimenting with free flow animation construction where I would just create each shot as I got inspiration from watching the previous and seeing where it led me.
The story involves an artist trying to come up with an idea for a painting, and decides to try out his new robot.
This robot, the "Art-bot" can create art for you, no talent needed... but maybe, it turns out, it isn't that easy.
