Aaron Sims’s film Archetype is a visual treat for scifi fans. It tells the story of RL7, a combat robot that runs from its creators after memories of its forgotten humanity start to come back. The short is stunning, and I can’t wait to see a feature version of it on the big screen.
The film rights have been picked up by producer John Davis (Chronicle), who has a first-look deal with Twentieth Century Fox. Lets hope they get the ball rolling on this one as quickly as possible, but until then check out the short film below.
I enjoy the types of films that used to dominate late night television in the ’80s, spending time with my family, filmmaking, photography, Rubik’s Cubes, Diet Pepsi, building old Shogun Warriors model kits, Canon cameras, comic books, AOR, coconut ice cream, mac & cheese, cold pizza, popcorn, nachos, UL Football tailgating, film festivals, reading, Barry Manilow (don’t ask), films with both Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase in them, Alf, Pac Man, 1979 Trans AMs, beer, Godzilla, Hooters (both the restaurant and ones girls like to keep hidden), and Bigfoot (he’s real). I’m just saying.
