Robbie: A Short Film About An Aging Robot, Made From NASA Archival Footage
Set 6,000 years in the future, Robbie is an aging self-aware robot looking back on his life in the last moments before his battery life runs out.
Created by Neil Harvey, the film is composed entirely from over 10 hours of NASA archival footage. I’m not 100% on this, as I assumed there were some scenes that involved manipulation, but I think it’s almost all done through video from NASA.
Harvey’s notes about the film are worth reading. It’s an interesting reflection on friendship and mortality.
