A Girl and Her Robot - What's Behind Indie Short Film Gear

Check out our behind-the-scenes interview with Gear filmmakers Kevin Adams and Joseph Ksander.

We're searching for the next great sci-fi filmmaker with the short films by all eight finalists [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/prototype/about] right now, but if you want to go behind the scenes to learn more about the creation of these movies, we'll be publishing weekly interviews with the Prototype filmmakers.

Today, you can take a peek into the minds behind Gear [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/prototype/filmmakers/kevin-adams-and-joseph-ksander] in our interview, where Kevin Adams and Joseph Ksander talk about where the idea behind the film came from:

The seed came from a more complex idea that Kevin had been working on for a while, partly inspired by his daughter. When we started working together, we pitched each other various projects, and Joe really responded to this idea of a dysfunctional friendship between a girl and her robot. We first developed it as a feature, and the short is sort of a slice from that treatment. But we wanted to make sure that the story stood on its own, with the larger world as a backdrop that hopefully makes you want to see more.
