Tergo, “a modern day fable for anybody who might be lonely and caught up in the rat race of life.”

Directed by 3D lighting artist Charles Willcocks, this touching short film is telling the story of Tergo, a lonely cleaning robot lost in the urban machine of London. Seemingly completely unnoticed by the people around, he cleans up all the mess we made until he is ready to leave this cruel world behind. “Tergo is the fifth short film from London film collective Pallas Pictures and their first to feature an entirely CG lead character.” To know more about Charles Willcocks, please visit his website or follow his creative work on Vimeo.
