Mantis by Grzegorz Jonkajtys

Watch Mantis
All works by Grzegorz Jonkajtys

Back when the Web was a smaller place, I wasted many hours watching the offerings on iFilm. Over time, the site morphed from an interesting source of indie film to a site so overrun with advertising I have a hard time suffering through all the propaganda for the payoff of a high quality short. Every so often, I venture back to iFilm to see what’s new. One of my recent viewings, Mantis, is a CGI tale of a robot going dumpster diving for the parts to create a friend. The result is a little Bride of Frankenstein, with a considerably more abrupt conclusion. The CGI work is definitely cool and director Grzegorz Jonkajtys has a unique vision as evidenced by other creations available through his site. If you like inventive CGI with a touch of the grotesque, Jonkajtys delivers.
