SHORT FILMS 38: Fifty Per Cent Grey

Writer/director Ruiari Robinson is only 24 and he's already been nominated for an Oscar. With a background in graphic design, he's done a few commercials but took six months to produce this short in his spare time. He wanted to create a film "with a really unhappy ending". Robinson tested a new rendering package, Arnold, which uses a lighting technique called 'global elimination'. A dark and eerie tale.
