SYNOPSIS

‘Zoom’ is the name of a curious three-wheeled scouting robot who lives on an abandoned military research base in the Atlantic ocean.

One rainy night Zoom finds a mysterious flying saucer trapped in a high-security cage. When a lightening storm causes a power-cut, the flying disc is suddenly released from its prison and comes face to face with the little droid.

Clearly some kind of lethal weapon, the flying saucer quickly decides to make Zoom its number one target. Zoom must now run for his life or face the chop!

He may be small but Zoom is super fast and he knows all the back routes and tunnels around the base. And a good job too because this deadly UFO won’t give up easily and not much will get in his way.

‘Run Zoom Run’ is a classic cat and mouse chase with a robot twist. A fast, fun, family animation short that moves along at a frantic pace.
