Mr. Hublot is a Luxembourg/France co-produced 11 min sifi animated film won the 2014 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.
Produced, written and directed by Mr. Laurent Witz and co-directed by Alexandre Espigares. Designed by sculptor Stephane Halleux, the story is set in a realistically world that is a combination of steam punk and a bizarre futuristic world.
The silent film is about Mr. Hublot, an agoraphobia and obsessive compulsive mechanical man with clockwork counters running in his forehead. He's scared of change and scared of the outside world. His entire world starts to change when he saved a lonely and abandoned terrified robot dog from a cardboard box and turns his life upside down in the sweetest and heartwarming way.
This visually and emotionally beautiful film uses full CGI (computer graphics imagery) to give us a futuristic steampunk environment for its title protagonist, the realistic and super detailed world realized with artful and breathtaking detail is easily another character in the film. The gorgeous mechanical and cluttered metropolis with magnificent details requires the use of massive computing power.
