Beyond Existence

In the far future, humanity attempts to prolong its existence by storing people’s consciousness inside machines. After humanity's extinction, one of the last surviving human consciousness ponders the purpose of its existence inside an empty universe

"Beyond Existence" was my thesis project for my BFA at Emily Carr University. The film tells a science fiction story which explores humanity's relationship with technology and speculates the limits and philosophical implications of our potential to use technology as a means to prolong our existence.

"Beyond Existence" received an award for production design at the Emily Carr University grad show and was screened at the Oxford International Short Film Festival & China International Conference of Science and Education Producers.
