"Wire Cutters," a wonderful short film on the rough lives of off-world robot miners

"A chance encounter proves fateful for 2 robots mining on a desolate planet."

On Reddit, filmmaker Jack Anderson explains that the making of his film involved a "$0 budget but thousands of hours of love and about a YEAR of rendering."

And all that rendering shows. "Animated as if by a team of hundreds, remarkably, this film was made by Jack Anderson while an undergraduate at Chapman University."
