Robots Revolt In High Octane Proof Of Concept For BOT WARS

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
While the premise for JV Kade's young adult scifi novel Bot Wars is nothing particularly original - the premise of robotic helpers gaining consciousness and rebelling for more rights lifts liberally from I, Robot and The Terminator making several other stops along the way - but these things are all about the execution and knowing your target audience and so it has proved rather popular. Which no doubt has a little something to do with how it crossed the paths of young filmmakers Steffen Hacker and Alexander Kiesl who have put together a very impressive proof of concept reel for a proposed feature adaptation.

The full proof of concept video reportedly runs around five minutes and while that long reel is not yet available online they have released a minute and a half long teaser to show off their design work and the scope of the action and it's sure to turn some heads. Check it out below.
