Robbie a Short Film

A Romantic Gesture That is Out of This World

Gifting a sci-fi film compiled of NASA footage is enough to make any geek swoon: Robbie, a short created by Australian director Neil Harvey, was first made with the intention of being an anniversary gift for his girlfriend. A few months later, it is a bit bigger than that and quickly getting the attention it deserves.

After downloading some 10 hours of preexisting NASA footage, Harvey cut it down into clips that "resonated" with him: over the course of a few months, an intriguing narrative evolved. Set 6,000 years in the future, the film follows Robbie, an aging robot drifting alone through space. Mesmerizing and fascinating to watch, both the story and the footage make our hearts go pitter-patter. See the film below and let us know what you think.
