Abiogenesis

It’s not often you get to see CGI modelling of this quality done with such a strong conceptual element. In this piece by talented director and artist Robert Mans, we observe an alternate kind of  invasion that places us in a day-in-the-life of a highly-efficient life-seeding robotic organism. The use of imagery in the film of insect-like wings, mandibles and thorns is extremely effective, at times feeling like the trippy sci-fi of The Fountain and other moments smacking of a scary DARPA demonstration video. I wish more mainstream sci-fi films were this inventive and thought-provoking.
