Artificial Intelligence this ain’t.  A young boy longs for company, his parents are always rowing and he believe the hype that the new robot helper come play mate, Blinky, will help heal the rift between his parents and that his home life will return to the happy situation it once was.

Of course, things never go quite to plan and soon the boy tires of his new robot pal.  Yet, you should never misuse a robot – you never know quite what will happen when conflicting orders are given... Trust me, you are going to see a number of Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics broken here.

This is a great short film, written & Directed by Ruairi Robinson.  It stars Max Records  who you may recognize from Where The Wild Things Are.  The cinematography is done by Macgregor and the music by Ólafur Arnalds, courtesy of Erased Tapes.

This may not be quite what you expect…
