One Eyed Robot’s homies, Tesla Boy have just recently released their second full Album, The Universe Made of Darkness. If you’re into 80′s inspired synth pop a la M83 definitely check it out! We had the pleasure to direct the music video for their single Thinking Of You off of their debut album, Modern Thrillls a little while back. Check it out below!
Also another newsworthy piece of info, we have finally and officially setup shop in sunny South Florida, only a stone’s throw away from Miami! We’re thrilled at the prospect of contributing our talents locally and look forward showing what we can do!
As we are prepping setting up shop in Florida, One Eyed Robot is also changing address in Atlanta. Our new ATL HQ will be in the awesome Fuse Arts Center, conveniently located downtown Atlanta in the historic M Rich building! Part of the space has some amazing exhibition rooms which we hope to put to good use as well down the road! Our new Florida office address is listed in the contact info of our site, along with the Atlanta address info, which is also listed below.

Our Award winning animated short film Fisher will be heading to Madeira, Portugal for its premier in that country as an Official Selection at the 2013 MudasFest International Short Film Festival. The Festival will be running from the 24th to the 26th of May and focuses exclusively on films without dialogue. The festival will be held in the beautiful and amazing Arts Centre House in Madeira which must be one of the most breathtaking and fitting venue Fisher has ever been screened at. The backdrop and environment captures the essence of the film magnificently and we are thrilled to have it featured in such settings!
The concept of the festival:
When we talk about movies without dialogues, we are immediately remitted to the beginning of cinema, a time where for technical impediments, the dialogues were replaced with inter-titles, mime, gestures and expressions. Now, as then, the film without dialogue continues to play a different but equally important role in the independent film and it is here that the MudasFest fits, as a showcase of the best that is in the international segment narratives in motion they are made in conventional film, stop-motion, traditional animation or computer animation.
As I was perusing film festivals online, it came to my attention that our award winning animated short, Fisher, was an official selection as well as a semi-finalist in the Animated films category at the 2011 Moondance film festival. A pleasant surprise but an odd one as well. It happens so often that when you submit a film to a festival, you might never hear back from them. Some festivals will reply with either a negative or positive response, while others don’t even bother giving you an update of your film. You would so happen to find out if you are selected or not by checking out their official selection and program lineup for the year. Being a semi-finalist in the animation category at the Moondance Film Festival comes at a surprise as they actually had contacted me saying my film was NOT selected for their festival that year. I remember being a bit disappointed as their ocean themed festival seemed to fit so well with the theme of my film. I wonder how this got all lost in translation and it’s been a year since, but anyways, here is the complete, albeit unseasonably late line up of finalists and winners that year! Fisher has now been an Official Selection in 25 films festivals worldwide which certainly makes it the little film that could!
News of our move to the Miami area is spreading with an article published about it in the Miami Art Guide which is the premier destination for happenings in the visual arts, music design and film world! Check it out!
