CNR 2013: Films & AV: Blinky TM (IRL)
He is known mainly for his science-fiction short films and animations, one of which was nominated for an Academy Award. Fifty Percent Grey was also included in the Animation Show of Shows. The Silent City concerns a group of soldiers wandering through a perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland; the cast includes actor Cillian Murphy. Blinky, his most recent short film, is a horror story about a robot family helper that goes wrong.
He signed on to direct a live action adaptation of Akira, but the project was cancelled after Robinson departed. Robinson will direct the Science-Fiction horror film The Animators.
Soon every home will have a robot helper.
It's perfectly safe.
