  Rinsch on set directing THE GIFT (2010)


SPOTLIGHT: "THE GIFT"
AND THE SHORT FILMS OF CARL ERIK RINSCH



     While to date mostly unknown to the general public, the name, vision and talent of director Carl Erik Rinsch have been some of the most oft repeated topics of discussion within "industry circles" these past few years.  Bursting onto the scene in the early - mid 2000s with a series of stunning sci-fi themed short films, music videos and TV spots (many under the RSA - Ridley Scott Associates banner) Rinsch was catapulted to the "A - List" of in demand directors upon the 2010 release of THE GIFT. 

                                                                                                                                          THE GIFT's robotic hero (2010)


  
     Part of a series of mini-films commissioned by the Phillips Corporation, it told in just under five minutes the story of a futuristic android butler attempting to retrieve a "package" for which his master was just violently executed.  On the run in the streets of Moscow for murder, THE GIFT's falsely accused "Richard Kimble"- like protagonist (aided and abetted by Rinsch) crammed more action, adventure and slick cinematic style into his five minute uber-odyssey than many features manage in 90 minutes.   The short became an Internet sensation, and as a result Rinsch was then connected to various big budget projects including re-dos of LOGAN'S RUN, THE 47 RONIN and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON as well as being the original name bandied to helm Ridley Scott's now current ALIEN "prequel" PROMETHEUS. 



  Cybernetic freerunner- "NIKE RUNNER" spot



     The GullCottage / Sandlot is proud, ... nah, freakin' PSYCHED!!!  to present THE GIFT as well as three of Rinsch's most popular TV commercials, "Heineken Futuristic", "Mercedes Opera" and the super cool "Nike Runner" -  featuring a quintessentially "Rinsch-ian" robotic freerunner athlete sporting some daring rooftop moves.   Enjoy.
