It starts ominously. A robot spacecraft flies into a planet’s atmosphere and embeds itself into the ground. Scouts are sent off to test the planet’s resources and presumably suck the planet dry. I’ve seen this movie about robot uprisings and the hijacking of Earth too many times. Luckily, this short isn’t one of them.
Directed by Richard Mans, Abiogenesis shows a future where robots don’t kill humans and destroy planets but actually save us and revives the world. It’s a fun one.
