@03:07I think it is the happy ending. Obviously, these two robots were, like, the last ones left, because the humans killed the others before. Humans, on the other hand, created robots, which were implied to serve them, but then they decided that they're ferocious (which, even if true, is only the humans' fault, because they created the robots), so they decided to kill them all. For me, the humans were so wrongful and deprived that they didn't deserve to rule anymore and the robots were just hurt and fighting for their lives. The fact that the bad guys were defeated and the good guys lives is the classic Disney-like conception for a happy ending.

@01:03While the music and visuals are beautiful, the mood comes mostly from what we see and hear, so the music should have more "fear" at this point.

Becoming Human is an unusual tale of love and sacrifice - where the common understanding of what is human behaviour and what is a robot behaviour is twisted, and the measures we take and defend to be justifiable suddenly collapse into a discomforting situation when the roles are swapped - in a world on the brink of change.

Credits to Vernon Ong for various resources and Ying Jie for animating many scenes, my other group members. And also for clearing up much of the paperwork to free up time for me to focus on this. Special thanks to Ernest Thio for the wonderful music and sound effects in which he composed/composited, and his patience for when working with me!

Tools: 3Ds Max, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
This animation was created and completed during a Diploma course at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.

@03:19This is absolutely stunning. I totally understand what you mean when you say 'WALL-E inspired'. This reminds me of just that. But it has a more..well..adult sense to it. I don't think Disney would kill all humans in a hearbeat. XD But you've done it beautifully. Not only is the music gorgeous but I just love how the robots look. You've got to be proud for this.

Sometimes, I am afraid that really smart robots are developed. Maybe it's because most movies show that a lot of people die after they do. But then I see movies like the one you did, and I can't help but hope that we develop them, if that allows such a cute story to exist. You didn't need words to explain it, watching it was enough. And it was one of the most adorable things ever. In the end those two became humans, and that was sweet enough~
Now I understand why the DD, you really deserved it. Good job <3

@03:19D : This is beautiful. The motions, the story, and the color and shadows were all so accurate and pretty and the robots were rather cute. For some reason, the guys with guns reminded me of Halo... =___=

@03:19Nicely executed. The concept is quite touching and the soundtrack makes it feel like one of those deep moments in a Miyazaki film.

On the side, am I seeing some Wall-E references in the robot designs? I like it.

Human beings are more ready to kill each other than to open themselves for understanding between cultures.

These robots learn this reality and, sadly, find no other choice than "becoming human" by replicating it.

Violence and hate leads towards more violence and hate. And how can we blame them when we are no different?
