A digitally engineered life form struggles with a belligerant operating system. In a skewed look at human/computer relations a belligerent digital light blinds our hero into desperate measures. The only way to stop the incomprehensible blinding pain is to opt for physical disablement. Meticulously hand-made on Silicon Graphics computers and Alias-Wavefront software.
This is an early example of a 'cyber film', a technique where the entire film is made inside a computer. The filmmakers took their rough pencil sketches and built the film from there. It's a time consuming process from creating an environment and skeletons for the 'characters' then adding realistic movement, texture and skin to the whole thing before rendering to a high resolution and printing it to 35mm film.
Blinder was screened before Godzilla at Wellington's Embassy Theatre throughout the film's season at the cinema - rare exposure for a short film.
