It's like 'Star Wars' meets 'Pacific Rim' meets… just take my money already!
The Leviathan is the work of Ruairi Robinson, an Irish animator, filmmaker, and Oscar nominee. Robinson made this awesome short on his own, with the help of the Irish Film Board, as a proof-of-concept pitch to any movie studios that might be paying attention. This is his way of saying, "Give me money so I can make this into a full-length movie."
If any Hollywood studios are reading this post (and they should be), I would like to encourage them to PLEASE PLEASE give Ruairi Robinson hundreds of millions of dollars ASAP. I need to see this movie. It has everything I love: airships, monsters… I guess that's it. But they're really good ones.
Robinson's only feature-length project so far was the 2013 flop The Last Days on Mars, so it would be a leap of faith for any studio to invest in this project. But you know what else was a leap of faith? Giving The Avengers to Joss Whedon. And you know how that turned out. AWESOME airships and monsters.
