Here is Rustmonkey's CG test animation for Philip K. Dick's classic drug-induced science fiction novel A Scanner Darkly. According to Lauren Davis at io9, the studio created this two-minute piece of surrealism before Section Eight Productions hired Richard Linklater to rotoscope Keavu Reaves and Robert Downey, Jr.
As much as I admire Linklater's fascinating adaptation, I have to admit really digging Rustmonkey's Lynchian take.
