Without a cast or crew physically present, Mark Holmberg created and rendered the feature film, 3086: Robot Like a Boss. “As computer technology gets better and more economical, the internet provides a better opportunity for crowd-sourcing, a form of outsourcing, to be employed as a model in film production.”

With the internet I am able to purchase a live action clip from a great actor in Texas, and a 3D object from an artist in Brazil, then build the movie in a studio in Kentucky. The internet really accelerate the process.

Mark Holmberg, who also produces CGI stock footage, presents a Comedy Feature Film about robots in the distant apocalyptic future. “The great thing about making a computer-animated movie from the indie film perspective is you aren’t constrained by your location, time, or available props. If you can imagine it you can do it,” says Mark.

3086: Robot Like a Boss is an alternative comedy that breaks from the cartoon conventions often used in mainstream computer animated films. It follows the adventure of three robots and a lady engineer who seek to stop a space pirate robot from using nuclear weapons on Earth. Although there are some live action moments the vast majority of the feature film is computer animated.

Through the use of crowd-sourcing, it is truly possible for someone to create a movie using talent from all over the world.
