Filmmaker/animator Mark Juhasz has just posted the online premiere for his animated short, titled ‘CARL.’ While the description “cyborg gladiator vs. space jesus” may fool you into thinking that this is a wacky humorous short, it’s a straight action-packed sci-fi piece that sorta reminds you of Aeon Flux, maybe not in art style but in the execution of the narrative.
The official synopsis from the creator:
The duel of Carl (Robot-Gladiator-Champion) and Space Jesus gets interrupted by a Techno-Angel, who awakens the human-side of CARL. So he changes sides and goes head to head against Drill-Raptors, EggBeater-Scorpions and a mighty BBQ-Octopus.
