Storyline

At a far-off, barren and lifeless star, somewhere in the deep and cold space, an oblong self-contained metal pod begins the landing procedure, on a mission to bring a vital and radical change. Suddenly, from the inside, four terraforming machines scatter to the four corners of the planet in search of its natural resources, and after a while, they return to unite with the vessel. Now, everything is ready for the land's astounding transformation. Written by Nick Riganas

You can get something almost this cool in a lot of video games nowadays.
6 February 2013 | by HellmantSee all my reviews

'ABIOGENESIS': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

This 5 minute New Zealand animated short was screened with the 2013 Oscar nominated animated shorts in theaters and billed as 'highly commended'. It's a science fiction tale directed by Richard Mans and tells the story of a machine that lands on a lifeless planet and brings it it's first life. The animation is beautiful but the story is almost nonexistent and there are no characters to speak of. You can get something almost this cool in a lot of video games nowadays. Still, it's pretty cool while you're watching it. Is it worth the 5 minutes? Sure. Is it something you'll remember? Probably not.
