Watch: Pixar's Experimental Short 'Automaton' Made by the FX Team

Pixar is getting even more experimental with something entirely different. Automaton is a 4-minute short film from the Pixar Effects team, using some of their own tools and Houdini 3D to make this mesmerizing creation. Pixar describes it as "a poetic interlude between a reality and an abstraction" - which doesn't really explain much. But there's more in an interview with director Krzysztof Rost last year. He says, "I wanted the main character to be a reality, a nature at its purest and seek ...

For example, if the character has a dorky personality, the character designer will try to portray this by creating a dorky-looking character.
