Eye candy: Exoids
An epic battle with giant killer robots? Old hat. An epic battle with giant killer robots during a hyper-kinetic car chase? Seen it. An epic battle during a hyper-kinetic car chase in which the protagonist is a cyborg slug?
Okay, that one is new, actually.
And that, in a nutshell, is Exoids, the latest collaboration between Gnomon Studios and director Meni Tsirbas. The animated short, the trailer for which can be seen above, shows a high-speed car chase between cyber-enhanced slug Gus Nitrous and his sinister robotic adversaries, set in a post-apocalyptic future.
The short is the start of a new series of collaborations between Tsirbas and Gnomon Studios. More details can be found on the Exoids website, which also includes making-of material and an interview with the director.
Full disclosure: CG Channel is owned by the Gnomon School of Visual Effects.
