In the 1980's, a 3D CGI animated film from DreamWorks Animation called The Works was almost going to be the first film made in CGI to ever be released, however; it was worked on from 1979 to 1986 by the Computer Graphics Lab at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) at Old Westbury, New York.


It was set in the future where a malfunctioning computer triggered a last World War but it repopulates the entire planet with robots, not long later where it would have focused on a experienced pilot named T-Square and a robot named Ipso Facto and the former would go to Earth to return humanity.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. There were production difficulties defining on the traditional produced ink OR work.
  2. The developers had an absurd lack of interest to continue the progress of the film.


  • The film was permanently cancelled.
  • Despite the film's cancellation, the trailer is still up.
  • Instead, Toy Story became the first CGI film in history. It was released in 1995 by Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Studios.


  • Famous industry professionals like Chuck Jones and Shamus Culhane toured the Lab while the film was being produced.
  • The name was inspired by the original meaning of the word "robot", derived from "robota" ("work"), a word found in many Slavic languages.
