Good Shooting Guide

Robots

by Paddy Uglow

I filmed a robotic installation for Stanza (stanza.co.uk) and wrote some music to go with it. It happened to be 90 seconds, so I put it into the 90 Second Challenge too with the music. I wanted to knock something together which wasn't obviously 'robotic'.

I like the result - it's kind of mournful. Have the robots defeated humanity, Matrix style? Or are these the dying remnants of a race of robots, created then destroyed by humans? Or something else? But either way, it feels like something has been lost - the victors have lost as much as the vanquished. It doesn't mean much really in itself, but you can make something of it if you think.
