With his creator gone, Artie must struggle alone to manufacture a semblance of his former love; pitting production against passion.

All that remains at the end of the world are the robots and the whispered memories of the humans that once were. One such robot is Artie, but unlike all of the others he not only remembers his creator but, because of the special bond they shared, carries his creator’s passion and drive to complete the robot utopia that they started together. But does Artie possess enough passion to overcome the repressive ennui of the grease stained world of manufacturing to fulfill his creator’s life-long dream?  More importantly, will Artie be able to restore Gidget, his own true love, to her former vibrancy? Or will he, like so many around him slip slowly into a rusted state of despondency and disrepair?

Hello StopmotionAnimation lovers. My name is Jonathan Franks and I am directing a piece called Manufactured Love. This story originated from a dream I had while listening to "Kings & Queens" by 30 Seconds to Mars. I scribbled down what I perceived to be the background and robots. After collaboration with the producer/writer & the concept artist we came up with a polished story and designs. As of now we are waiting for funding to start producing our 7 minute short. 

I know this site shouldn't be for me to cry out for funding, but we do NEED support to move forward. ***We just received two backers, $1,000 each, 2 days in a row. 

So look at the page, see what you think and spread it on. Or please help back it. We will be giving away on-set armatures of the robots and spiderbots. Refer to the concept art on the kickstarter page or my HomePage. Thank you, thank you for reading this post.

Also, If you are interested in helping with the project we could arrange a via Skype session before, during or after production. If you're close to Boston, we can arrange a meeting.
