CNR 2014: Movies: Red Echo Post (USA): Desire
Red Echo Post is a sophisticated editorial, visual effects and sound design company. Located in downtown Cincinnati, Red Echo Post specializes in high-end editorial, cgi, animation, 2d motion graphics, color grading, and sound design.
Rob Fetters is a rock musician, guitarist, and songwriter from Cincinnati who has a deep well of talent from which he draws. His pop-rock sensibilities shine in everything he touches from commercial composing to his solo work and member of many bands, past and present, such as the PsychoDots, The Bears, and The Raisins.
Desire is the story of a small red robot who has been created for a specific purpose in life. His tasks are small and seemingly menial, yet he may play a more important role than he knows. As he goes about his given duties, he encounters other robots whose capabilities outmatch his own and our hero suddenly finds himself feeling a brand new emotion: Envy.
He gives in to this new emotion and dramatically changes himself in order to outshine his perceived nemeses. Over time, our hero slowly becomes unhinged and falls into a downward spiral of jealousy, resentment, and unchecked envy.
Only after a dramatic plunge into the abyss of jealousy does our hero finally learn a valuable lesson about the outcome of unrestrained desire...Or does he?
