The robot porn genre has exploded in recent years with the release of dozens of movies about robots and sex toys.
But it has also become a lot more complicated than a simple robot porn film.
“We really wanted to make something that people would actually enjoy,” says producer and director Justin Farr, who directed the short film “Pornbots.”
“That’s really what we were going for, really.”
He explains that “Punkbot” was the first of the two short films Farr made with his friend, actor Justin Tashman, to showcase the work they did to create “Porno Robots.”
“I’m a huge fan of the genre, and Justin and I wanted to do something with that in our film,” Farr says.
“I just wanted to put something in the world that was fun, and it’s fun to watch.”
Farr started by designing the robots himself.
The project started with a single-engine airplane, which he built and tested in his spare time.
“It was a fun way to do it, but it’s also a pretty boring way to build it,” Farrow says.
The robots were built with a computerized hand-held camera, which was used to record each robot’s movements.
Then, Farr and Tashmann created the robotic faces that would be used in the short.
The robot-face robots were then fed into the computer system and used to create the robots’ voices.
“One of the biggest things that’s different about this is that we actually did not have any of the humans on the team,” Farp says.
Each robot’s voice was recorded separately using a robotic microphone, then combined to create a unique robotic voice.
“All the actors that were in the scene were all in the same room, and they were all playing with the same microphone,” Farry says.
In the short, each robot is asked to perform a certain act in the form of a sex scene.
The actor who performed the act would then narrate that part of the sex scene, with Farr adding a voiceover to give a sense of the experience.
“For example, we had the robot that’s doing the sex, and then the robot with the cock, and the robot without the cock,” FARR says.
He explains how each robot in the movie was then trained to perform certain actions with their human counterparts.
“The thing that’s really exciting about it is that the actor who plays the robot and who’s being played by Justin Tashingman, are actually the same person,” Farrell says.
Farr explains that the project started off as a joke.
He had been looking at making an airplane with a human-like voice for a long time, but he didn’t think he would be able to make a good robot.
“There’s no human who’s going to do the cock and then fuck the robot,” he says.
Then a friend told him about a short that had just come out that had robots performing sex acts on each other.
“And I thought, ‘Oh my god, that’s insane,’ ” Farr recalls.
He started working on the short after realizing how hard it would be to make an airplane-like robot.
The problem was that he was only able to do one stunt.
He realized that it would take him two or three weeks to get everything done, and he had to do a lot of research about robots to figure out how to make it work.
FARR and TASHMAN used to work together on “Battleship,” which was a film about the battle between humans and robots.
Fairs “was kind of a big inspiration for what was happening with this project,” FISH says.
They both had been working together on other projects for years, including an animated film and a feature film about a young girl’s relationship with a robot.
But Farr wanted to take his own direction, and “Batship” was his way of pushing the boundaries of his work.
“Justin and I had a lot in common and we were just going to go in different directions,” Fairs says.
But when he saw “Punks,” Fells idea struck him.
“That was the movie that got me into this whole project,” he said.
“This was a really good story, and we wanted to tell it.”
FARR explains that he and Tashesman began working on “Puns,” a short film about an alien race called the Zonarans.
“Zonarants are the first aliens that I think people really understand,” Fisher says.
Zonars are humanoid aliens that have been colonizing Earth for thousands of years.
Fisher’s short is about the Zons first encounter with humans, and how they use the humans as their slaves.
“They were really like the kind of robots you could imagine in a science fiction film,” he explains.
FISH explains that they began to work on “Robots” as a way to test the idea of sex
