It’s not a secret we love robots here at BLR, so we wanted them to be the heroes in our latest promo clip. Luxury cars with powerful engines to drive through roads under severe speed restrictions, cable TV that allows us to pay to watch all kind of sports, all from our comfortable sofa, and of course, hyper expensive cell phones that do almost everything but making a decent phone call.

Yes, our happiness is based on things we don’t need and governed by entities we don’t control, so what? Sit down and turn on the tv!

The robots were taken from real Japanese robot model kits, and they now hold a privileged position in our freak museum. The bad guy spits real smoke out of its mouth! The environment is made of cardboard houses that were integrated with the help of camera tweaks. It all serves to the purpose of creating a dumb homogeneous atmosphere in which we’re defined by what we’ve got, that is, the same lame things.

Don’t take the message too seriously. This is a promo video we’ve done to laugh at ourselves. We all have an i-diot inside, and it’s so fun!


From the VFX geniuses, Big Lazy Robot in Barcelona, comes this delightful short which makes fun of our dependence on social networks/media and our infatuation with our smartphones, specifically those ubiquitous and worshiped iPhones.

Have you noticed the social network backlash in recent months? Well, it’s hitting critical mass and coming to a head. BLR VFX joins in on the bashing in the most creative and adorable manner.

These are the CG savants which brought us the mindblowing Keloid trailers. Check it out, be entertained and laugh at yourselves.
