Meet "Artifact", a new short film created by BNU animation student Kristis Bandzevicius.

Inspiration for "Artifact"
Inside", director Kristis Bandzevicius wanted to tell a story "based on surroundings rather than using dialogue".
In this case, the simple design of the dystopian fantasy world helps to support the narrative. For "Artifact", Kristis "wanted to tell a story about a lonely robot in a desolate world, searching for any signs of life."
"Artifact" was created as part of the final module of the Master's Degree in 3D Animation at BNU, Module DA704, which involves the creation of a final project and demo reel.
