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

Beautiful piece of animation art
16 November 2015 | by bluefox01See all my reviews

The deeper theme of this short film seems to me the joy of creation. It plays magnificently with transformations of mechanical and biological forms.

It tells a story about seeding (or supporting) lifeforms on a barren planet. So, I have to disagree with the previous reviewers, that there is no story. What do you expect to see, before you label something a story - talking faces??

At several points in the film I ask myself: Could this be possible? From a chemical/biological standpoint I have to say "no, that's not how it works". Nevertheless, the visual ideas are inspiring and the sound is equally good!
