The film, “Rust in Peace,” documented the journey of a seven-foot tall robot trying to find his way home after being discarded in a junkyard by its maker.

The project was an international affair, including producers from Paris and Belarus and a cinematographer from Moscow. A tall puppeteer inhabited the robot suit. Students were challenged to shoot safely in a junkyard and experienced their first night shoots, ending their production days at 1 a.m., 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. for the last three days of filming.

At the end of the shoot, the chief electrician said, “the CNM students were better prepared than crews he’s hired from the union overflow list.”
