Solace is a short film about a lonely monarch
seeking inspiration. The simple story takes place in a sort of post-apocalyptic
desert world. The main and only character is a regal looking mechanical
creature who walks alone through his castle and kingdom searching for the
subject of his next painting.
It should also be noted that Solace is actually a tiny excerpt from a much larger story involving many characters, an entire society of these mechanical creatures, as well as a few humans. This race of machines has inherited the Earth from mankind as we eventually stopped taking care of it, effectively destroying ourselves. Many millennia have passed and the machines have long since reached the apex of their evolution and have become stagnant as a species. This ruler is grappling with both the growing unrest among his subjects and the upbringing of his adopted human son. More of this story would be revealed in subsequent shorts.
