Hum – the Poignant Video of a Robot Who Has a Dream!


“A solitary dish washing robot living out his life in the back room of a restaurant is enlightened to the world that exists beyond his four walls, with the help of a small friend he breaks free of confinement to pursue his dream of exploration”

I enjoy watching creative videos and the video below is certainly very. very creative. I will include the notes from the website below, but what I find most exhilarating is the skill with which it was constructed.

This was apparently a student assignment and it looks like such a finished and polished project. The animation is superb, the story line is good-cute and it should be a lesson to anyone that they can do what they set out to accomplish if they just stick with it long enough.

I am not the only person to find this quite an achievement as this short video has earned numerous awards and recognition.

From the Vimeo website:

Hum was the film we created for our junior year advanced production class in 2015 while attending Chapman’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. The film was created over one semester (February 2015 – May 2015) with a budget of $2000. We hope you enjoy the film and are compelled to share it with your friends and family, you are what motivates to continue telling stories.
