Submission + - 2001: A Space Odyssey's Dave Returns to Sci-fi in New Film-> 1 1

An anonymous reader writes: Indie Kickster-funded short HENRi stars sci-fi legend in a roll 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.
