Synopsis: Amour Robotic is a short stop-motion & 2D animated film which was shot in New Zealand by two young Australians with an over abundance of imagination and a Nikon DSLR. The story is an allegorical account of the trial we face in life and death. The robots on the shelf are brought to life by a supernatural force and, through interacting with each other and their life bringer, explore themes of jealousy, isolation, love, anger, fear, joy, and loss. These trials reflect those the unique experiences that we all have gone or will go through during the course of our lives.
