Short Film Showcase – Rosa (2011)

Presenting short films from independent filmmakers…

Rosa, 2011.

Written and Directed by Jesús Orellana.

Spanish comic book artist Jesús Orellana’s post-apocalyptic CG-animated short Rosa has been making quite a stir after being released online on Thursday. Producing the no-budget film at his home in Barcelona over the space of a year after teaching himself the animation package, Orellana went on to screen the visually impressive short at a number of festivals including the Seattle International Film Festival, SITGES, Los Angeles Short Film Festival, Screamfest and Toronto After Dark. With the film proving such a hit following its arrival online, Orellana is attracting interest from Hollywood producers and studios and now plans on turning Rosa into a live-action feature.

“Rosa is an epic sci-fi short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a cyborg deployed from the Kernel project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. Rosa will soon learn that she is not the only entity that has awakened and must fight for her survival. “
