The clever android
6 November 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yellow is an early short film from budding talent Neill Blomkamp who made his way up to directing from visual effects work. In essence it is a show-reel but also part of a viral advertising campaign on behalf of Adidas hence why this film has a theme of yellow.

It was shot in a hand-held camera mockumentary style and deals with a robot gone rogue. The film begins by depicting the development process of robotic characters. Five androids were created each one identified with a different colour.

The yellow android gained an ability to think and learn and escaped and lived within society for 18 months where it observed humans. It is eventually tracked down by the police and the film finishes with a suggestion that AI becomes part of society.

Like his full length films it has elements of social conscious as well as a clever use of special effects and a futuristic setting on a low budget.
