Watch Carl Erik Rinsch’s The Gift

Philips recently released Carl Erik Rinsch’s futuristic action thriller short film The Gift. It is about a robotic manservant who flees the police. Rinsch is not only Ridley Scott’s protege, but also a commercial director for Scott’s company RSA.

Rinsch’s name as he was originally tapped to direct a prequel/remake of Alien, but Fox got Ridley Scott to helm the project himself instead. Rinsch’s involvement, after seeing this, would have been pretty interesting to watch. Rinsch’s The Gift shows an amazing sense of imagination, visual effects artistry and composition.

Currently Rinsch is developing a remake of Creature From The Black Lagoon and is in preproduction on anepic period samurai film titled 47 Ronin to star Keanu Reeves for Universal. You can also watch The Gift in Hi-Def over at YouTube!
