Robbie: A Short Film Made Entirely From NASA Footage [Video]

Neil Harvey artfully took 8 minutes of NASA footage and spliced it together with a musical score and narrative overlay to create the story of Robbie; a self aware robot. If your boss asks why you’re crying in your cubicle, just make him watch it too.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    How is it possible that I could become so choked up over a story about a robot who displays more kindness and humanity than most humans I know? Left alone by his human “friends”, he had to see his home before he fell asleep. How sad. How beautiful.

    Might be the second best film ever made.

    I wouldn’t have believed I could be so touched, become so emotional just watching a robot film – I was, though, definitely. Not so tough after all…
    Thank you, H-T G.
