I made this lil' film for the kindly folk at MASSIVE. It was part of a series of seven films celebrating Frankenstein's Birthday.
Thanks to Nadja Oertelt and Harriet Bailey for getting me involved! And thanks to Skillbard for doing wonders with the sounds (again).
Check the rest of them out, they're all rather good. https://vimeo.com/album/5090081

The series delves into the origins of life and consciousness, toolmaking, artificial intelligence, augmented bodies and minds, and the ethics of playing God. Check out the full series: Reanimation!
