An outdated, quirky little robot falls for his sexy friend's latest rechargeable batteries.

Director's Statement

'nstaCharge is the lightest of fares meant to elicit no more than a smile or two as it sets about accomplishing its true motive -- that of pleasing its maker. It is here that you will find his childhood dreams, his nephews' toys, the motorcycles he once rode and one day will crash again.


'nstaCharge on Kickstarer
We've been funded!

Having raised nearly $14k on Kickstarter in the spring of 2012,
we are currently hard at work on Game (PC/Mac/iOS) and Storybook (iOS)
adaptations of our short film.
