Not too long ago(early 1990s) automakers used animals to test cars safety and thankfully animal testing is no longer practiced by any of the major automobile makers. Today crash test dummies do the work, recording different data to show how the accident would affect humans.
A talented Malek Rizkallah, made a short movie called Crush with brilliant CGI for his final project of the 3D Animation and Visual Effects program in Vancouver Film School.
The short film shows a pair of dummies being assembled for a crash test and just moments before the test begins, a fateful spark alters the process.
This event makes both dummies sentient and ignites a connection between the couple, driving them to defy their destination. Hit play to see what happens next.
