serve and protect? - a synopsis

"serve and protect?" is a 2017 experimental animation / machinima created using e-waste computers, Garry's Mod and Valve's Half-Life (1 & 2) assets, OBS Studio [for screen-capturing] and YouTube. It presents the topic of police brutality and institutional racism through the eyes of a different kind of other, an android, as he/she is pursued and ultimately terminated by the usage of excessive force by those who swore to "protect and serve". This short is a commentary on the rising militarization of the police force and the exponentially increasing racial problems, especially in the United States of America.
