The Continuum – “Lisa”

There is a new boom in the technology sector: Robotics. Humanoid robots have replaced most retail employees in major chains across the country. What sets these robots apart is how well their personalities are designed– how charming and helpful they are, how human they are perceived. Few people in the world can design such a robot. It is an art – it requires a deep understanding of both humanity and technology. Our story focuses on one such individual: ANDERS OHM. Drew Mylrea is director based in Los Angeles. He lives with ten robots.

  1. I think he is a perfectionist that is trying to control every aspect of his world. He hates his boss because his boss changes his creations to be less than perfect (from his viewpoint) and every flaw of his creations is unacceptable. He keeps changing everything to make it so it’s “perfect” for himself until he sees no flaws. He seems to be lacking in introspective qualities though and so his entire focus is in external modification to create a “perfect” world. Just my interpretation. Great film

  2. As a current film student, I have to say that I would love to work on something as amazing as this. You truly have done a spectacular job in every facet and it is quite remarkable. Literally one of the best short films I have ever seen and I hope you submit this to festivals.

  3. Feels incomplete. What’s he trying to fix/improve/change about his Lisa model? Was he bothered by his new creation crooning for his robo-bride? Parts of the plotline like his frustration with his boss and being shit on in life by his model breaking are very clear but others are open to interpretation to such a degree a definitive statement’s not being made.

  4. Just some constructive criticism first. I think the lens flare effect was a bit much and you could have trimmed a few minutes off considering the tale you was telling. However I liked it. The actor playing the OCD roboticist trying to be god and create the perfect life form was solid and the movie seems like a cross between an experimental piece mixed with mainstream. Kind of like THX-1138 meets Bladerunner. Good job!
