Scatter Brain Matter, or the Evolution of Mankind

From the shallow waters of the primordial soup, a primitive creature crawls ashore. The action starts when trees organically bubble up from a previously barren landscape. A being with a single eye jumps out from his hole in the ground. Under a big tree, a brain and a fleshy blob are playing a game together, though their rules seem incompatible. When the other creature knocks over their game, it sets in motion a chase that leads to the discovery of an electrified new world.

Blending and juxtaposing video with computer generated animation, the short film "Scatter Brain Matter, or the Evolution of Man" may seem oblique at first glance. But scattered beneath the surface there is more than meets the eyes (and brain) Given time, the mix of visual and conceptual experiments grows into a multi faceted audio visual parable.
