DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT//
I’ve always been fascinated with science fiction and the history of man’s desire to gain knowledge into what defines our existence. I want to thank the amazing work of James and Lucas at Pettus Creative for their amazing VFX work in fulfilling the vision of this film and the message of bridging the world of artificial intelligence to the living being. I also wish to thank my actors for their great work with adding depth, subtleness and humanity into their roles.
