We're proud to present Adam & Eve: Mk II, a short animated film by Sebastian Kuder, an undergraduate animation student who is part of the first cohort of animators to graduate from Escape Studios this summer. Adam & Eve: Mk II is a sci-fi re-telling of the Genesis story. Sebastian has directed and animated a number of short films at Escape Studios over the last three years; including the fan film Star Wars - the Escape, and Planet Mars, which has made the official selection for many animation festivals around the world. Adam & Ev Mk II was Sebastian's final project at Escape Studios.
Adam and Eve Mk. II is a modern re-telling of the Biblical origins story, set in a post-apocalyptic world in which human memories are uploaded into the artificial brain of a humanoid robot.
The short film was created as part of Sebastian's final year project at Escape Studios, and it is his last project completed as an undergraduate student.
Adam and Eve Mk.II takes inspiration from the so-called "ImmortalityDrive" - a large memory device which was taken to the International Space Station in a Soyuz spacecraft on October 12, 2008.
The Immortality Drive contains fully digitized DNA sequences of a select group of humans; with the intention being to preserve human DNA in a time capsule, in case some global cataclysm should occur on Earth.
Written, directed, produced and edited by Sebastian Kuder.
Animated by Sebastian Kuder (apart from the walk and the idling animations at the end, by Mixamo Adam – Unity / Oats Studios).
