PostHuman

We're all good geeks who love William Gibson and Akira, right?


I know I do, and apparently so does writer/director Cole Drumb, as evidenced by his short animated film called: Posthuman that I have posted below. From the website: "Set in an adrenalized future of espionage, assassins, and out of control super science, PostHuman follows a genius hacker and his dog as they help an enigmatic young woman to free the remaining test subject of a black ops ESP test lab." Well, that seems perhaps a little bit generous for a synopsis, but let's be honest here, all I'm really looking for out of this one is for somebody's head to explode...

Let's watch.


Hmmm... boobs, blood, some explosions, a dash of witty banter, and the now seemingly mandatory Tricia Helfer appearance too? The guy obviously has a copy of the Playbook, man. What else could you want? Well, y'know... except for a little more narrative maybe, but then these things aren't really short films, so maybe it's not fair to ask for that. These are more Proof-of-Concept scenes really. And from the looks of it, Youtube is full of them. Nothing but Proof-of-Concept footage and idiots hurting themselves, that's all there is on Youtube. That and cat videos, of course...
