Web Animation: Doll Face
Doll Face is a short animation about a robot attempting to imitate the human faces it sees on a TV screen. It's chilling and beautiful, and can be found here:

This animation provides examples of:

  • And I Must Scream: Maybe. We aren't sure whether the machine is still conscious by the end or not. But it did blink...
  • Cute Machines: The robot, if for no other reason than how much of a woobie she is.
  • Downer Ending: The robot's attempts to become beautiful end with her being unable to reach the television screen. When she desperately attempts to reach it, her mechanisms break and she dies.
  • I Just Want to Be Beautiful: The poor robot.
