Short Film: HENRi

"HENRi" Written and Directed by Eli Sasich

"HENRi" is an absolutely fantastic Kickstarter-funded short film by director Eli Sasich.  In it, a research spacecraft that has fallen into disrepair becomes self-aware and assembles a body for itself to feel more human.  

"HENRi" was written and directed by Eli Sasich, whose short film "Atropa" we we posted earlier this month.  While Atropa was a proof-of-concept, though, HENRi is a complete story.  Like "Atropa," "HENRi" was inspired by classic science fiction films.  In fact, the ship in the film is voiced by actor Keir Dullea, best known for portraying Dr. David Bowman in Kubrick's classic film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
"HENRi is an epic new sci-fi short film starring Keir Dullea (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Margot Kidder (Superman). Kickstarter funded, and two years in the making, HENRi tells the story of a derelict spaceship that becomes self-aware and builds itself a mechanical body in order to feel alive. Utilizing a mixture of quarter-scale miniatures, in-camera effects, and computer animation, HENRi is a completely unique and visually stunning short film."
