Written, designed and animated by Charlie Stewart – and produced by Scrambled Studio -, While You Were Sleeping is an animated short film that takes its cue from a question: what will happen to all technological devices when man will no longer be there?
We are thus catapulted into two houses where everything has been abandoned, there are still dishes to be washed, plants are dead and beds unmade. The only “sign of life” are the voices of two intelligent vocal assistants who, after sounding the alarm clock, begin a surreal conversation.
As the sun goes down we discover what happened to the tenants of the two houses, until the following morning arrives and the two devices make the alarm ring out and start the same conversation as the day before and the day before.
While You Were Sleeping “explores the longevity and limitations of artificial intelligence“.
