A little robot born on Mars. The introverted scientist who created it. A meta-fictional "found footage" re-telling of NASA's Mars Pathfinder mission as a story of outcast people and forgotten technology, about wondrous things struggling for attention in busy worlds.
The film is comprised of one long take and actual material from the surface of Mars. All effects were created analogue.
This short is part of the omnibus feature ORBIT(FILM), produced by Mark Elijah Rosenberg (Rooftop Films) and Mike Plante (Cinemad), a collaborative project in which different artists used a mix of NASA footage and new material to tell stories about our solar system.
