Death & The Robot is a stop-motion animated film directed by  Austin Taylor  and written by Austin and Alex Thompson.

Made at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts on a very tight budget ($1,500) it involves 2D animation and CGI as well as the actual stop-motion figures used in the production.

"The film takes place on a world where there is no longer any life - just an endless sea of graves - and a personification of Death has grown terribly bored without any more life to take. When she (yes, Death is a "she" in the film's world) meets a hapless steam-powered Robot who has been secretly sustaining an underground greenhouse for centuries, an unlikely friendship emerges between them - but at a severe cost..."  - Alex Thompson
