The Movie

New from producer Tim Burton and director Shane Acker comes the post-apocalyptic fantasy "9". In the too-near future, the world's machines have turned on mankind, decimating the human population before being largely shut down.

In a mission to salvage the legacy of civilization, a group of small creations were given the spark of life by a scientist in the final days of humanity. Surviving past the apocalypse, one of their own, #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive.

With their group so few, these "stitchpunk" creations must summon individual strengths in order to outwit and fight against the still-functioning machines.

"9" is in theatres 9/9/09.

The Contest

Give your own creation the spark of life! The fictional universe of "9" is filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes, constructed primarily of found objects from the wasteland that Earth has turned into. DeviantART and Focus Features are challenging you to do what you do best and get creative! Invent a machine-like creature of your own using common, household found objects, and submit drawings, paintings, sculptures, and even photographs of your creature.

Check out the trailer above and images from the movie for inspiration!
