When a strange mechanical device lands on a desolate world, an entire galaxy starts to change. A fantastic science fiction short film by the talented Richard Mans. The film was inspired by NASA's Mars Rover: Richard Mans was one of its former animators. In Mans' own words: "While I was working on an animation contract for NASA, I was inspired by animations for their Mars Rover missions. I thought it would be fun and original to make my own robot into something like NASA's Mars Rover probe, but let my imagination run wild as to what the robot would do once it lands on the planet." Richard Mans began working on the Abiogenesis concept in 1998. It took 14 years to realize his vision. "Abiogenesis is the process by which a living organism arises naturally from non-living matter, as opposed to biogenesis, which is the creation of living organisms by other living organisms."
