In the absolutely brilliant stop-motion animation “Fabricated” which took filmmaker Brett Foxwell ten years to create, features a gorgeous mechanical world brought to life. As seen through the eyes of Oto, a creature made of metal and bone who wanders through a rusty jungle. As Oto makes his way, he encounters a robotic brass being who disparages Oto’s bones while extolling the virtues of metal in the new world. Unfortunately, that being cannot take part in the new world due to a rusted body. After this meeting, however, Oto goes off searching and fighting for its own sense of self, that is until the next new thing comes along.
From a pile of discarded parts through an anonymous assembly line, a creature named Oto is constructed from steel and bone and sent off. Making his way through an old world that is dying and a new world struggling to be born, Oto begins to sense that he may have a part to play in the evolution of his imperfect kind.
Foxwell also created a fascinating behind-the-scenes video showing how the film was made.
