Indie Kickstarter-funded short HENRi stars a sci-fi legend in a role very much like HAL-9000 — with a twist. Wired writes: ‘If it sounds a little bit like 2001: The Later Years, then here’s the real twist: HENRi, the ship/body, is voiced Dr. Dave Bowman himself, Keir Dullea.’ In a making-of video for the film, Dullea says, ‘I guess you could say the character of HENRi was a sane version of HAL.’ The film itself utilizes a mixture of the old and the new — combining live-action sequences with puppetry, quarter-scale miniatures, and modern CGI. The official trailer has just been released.

Because I’m a huge fan of Sci-Fi, and this Crowd-sourced movie sells for $2.99, I went ahead and bought the movie instead of renting it.
