"Motivation protocol" is apparently an alien euphemism for "torture." Kaleb Lechowski spent seven months creating a sci-fi short that already has Hollywood talking about expanding it into a feature film.
Created by amateur filmmaker Kaleb Lechowski, 22, the new CGI short R'ha is centered on the classic tale of a civilization almost annihilated by its own weapons, as the machines turn on their creators. Yeah, you've seen that story everywhere from Terminator to Battlestar Galactica, so what makes this one unique? Lechowski has focused his story on a four-armed alien soldier, captured by the machines and used in an elaborate ploy. That's right—no human characters at all.
