There’s something in dummies that simply ignites the human imagination, inspiring us to come up with various forms of art. We have seen countless examples of this over the years and now there’s a new one that involves crash test dummies.
We are talking about CRUSH, a CGI animated short film which tells the story of a crash test dummy pair. The two are placed in their natural working environment, which, for this occasion, happens to be a VW Scirocco.

As the car is being pulled towards the barrier, there’s a spark that brings the two to life. A sudden connection is formed and the two fall in love just moments before the impact. As they venture further into the experience, they realize that their car is about to hit the obstacle.

While this all sounds a bit cheesy, the film itself is rather entertaining to watch. Then again, it had to be, considering the massive amount of work that’s been put into it.

CRUSH is a a student’s final project for the 3D Animation and Visual Effects program in Vancouver Film School. This took six months to complete, with the author saying: “I had a lot of fun doing this. I was inspired by almost everything I saw, heard and felt for the past year (2013).”
