Would Robots Care? “No Robots” video

“No Robots” is a touching animation short by YungHan Chang (Taiwan). He and Kimberly Knoll (USA) directed the student film, made at San Jose State University. No Robots was his first animation project. It’s a mostly silent film, so don’t despair if you don’t understand the newscaster at the beginning; it’s quite easy to follow. I’ve always liked the warmth of ‘classic’ line drawn animation and colorization (even if it’s primitively drawn) over the often artificial 3-D computer-generated kind. It’s just easier on the eyes and more folksy. Add in an old city landscape setting and some futuristic themes (anti-robot demonstrations, robots that care) and I’m good to go. Nice job, guys.
