Autodesk inaugurates its new robotics lab at Pier 9 with screening of Artoo in Love

Robert Dow

Autodesk is building a robotics lab at Pier 9 and its first inaugural event was a screening of the movie Artoo in Love by Evan Atherton. The movie is a sweet three-minute short about the love life of an R2D2 robot. First time filmmaker Atherton worked as an intern at Autodesk before he finished up his degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of California at Berkley. As was going through the process, Atherton began to realize he had another love, filmmaking and he began to think he might like to work in special effects. – See more at: GraphicSpeak
