“Model Citizen” | Dystopian Animated Short Film 2020

Created by David James Armsby.

“What is a Model Citizen? A Model Citizen is a providing father. A Model Citizen is a caring mother, all in service of a scrappy, young boy or girl. A Model Child raised by a Model Family, to become a Model Citizen of their own!”
This brand-spanking-new installment of the Autodale series follows the lives of the Robinson family; Autodale’s perfect citizens.

I’ve wanted to make an animated short film based around the life-cycle of an Autodale citizen/family for a very long time. We’ve only ever seen Autodale through the eyes of children. All of the other short films in the series focus on skeptical children being successfully brainwashed/indoctrinated into complacency with Autodale’s dystopian ways. This short film doesn’t have that arc. This short film is about the parents. These characters have NO DOUBTS about how this system works anymore…

SONG:
Tchaikovsky – “Waltz of the Flowers

GUEST VOICE ACTOR:
Mrs. Robinson – “Kirie Quackenbush”

This short film is the fifth short film in the Autodale series. Check out the playlist here!:

  1. idk with the exception of the last part with the hole and the mask it seems more like the ideal world where people focus on having children and making families

  2. notice how they only have 1 child each family, it means the population will keep going down. If every family had 2 it would stay the same, if every family had 3 the population would go up.

  3. We already live in a dystopia, and guess what? There’s no families in it.

  4. Imagine
    Random kid outside of the city: can I come over to your grandma’s house after schooL?
    the child who lives inside the city: what are you talking about? What are ‘grandmas’?

  5. This looks like the future of China….the rich are in that big tower but the rest most likely have less then this family and the government more control…wait isn’t that just normal China?
