While the premise for JV Kade's young adult scifi novel Bot Wars
is nothing particularly original - the premise of robotic helpers gaining consciousness and rebelling for more rights lifts liberally from I, Robot
and The Terminator
making several other stops along the way - but these things are all about the execution and knowing your target audience and so it has proved rather popular. Which no doubt has a little something to do with how it crossed the paths of young filmmakers Steffen Hacker and Alexander Kiesl who have put together a very impressive proof of concept reel for a proposed feature adaptation.
The full proof of concept video reportedly runs around five minutes and while that long reel is not yet available online they have released a minute and a half long teaser to show off their design work and the scope of the action and it's sure to turn some heads. Check it out below.
