OMFG of the Day: Every Child Wants a ‘Blinky’!

Sound is such an instrumental tool in filmmaking as it not only can make or break a film, but change the tone drastically. Academy Award nominated director Ruairi Robinson makes this exercise look easy in his teaser trailer for Blinky, a new indie film that’s on the hush-hush. We got our hands on the stunning teaser that displays a boy (played by Where the Wild Things Are‘s Max Records) and his one Christmas wish: He wants a “Blinky” toy. The teaser is stylish, artistic and incredibly creepy. If I were to pitch it I’d call it a futuristic Child’s Play. In short, OMFG. What say you? Robinson was nominated for a best animated short Oscar in 2001 for a sci-fi comedy called “Fifty Percent Grey.” He also wrote and directed a sci-fi short titled “The Silent City“. He was at one time attached to Akira.
