Records is 13 now, but at the age of eight, according to IMDb, he “led a protest for vegetarian options at his school cafeteria.” Beside his impressive turn in Spike Jonze’s film, he also played young Mark Ruffalo in Rian Johnson’s “The Brothers Bloom.” Next for him is “Blinky,” the
feature debut latest short from Oscar-nominated filmmaker/animator Ruairi Robinson. The teaser trailer below shows Records’ character acquiring a retro robot (so hot right now) as a toy/playmate/mechanically smiling possible threat. The film will presumably turn up on the festival circuit soon. [H/t to /Film]
You can watch Robinson’s 2006 Academy Award-nominated short “The Silent City” (featuring Cillian Murphy) here (Quicktime file).
Incidentally, Records’ father Shawn Records is a photographer who created a series of photos, entitled “Owner of This World,” from shots of his son on the “Wild Things” set, one of which is available for purchase on the print site 20×200.
