Embarrassed Robots from Owen Wells Studio on Vimeo.

Owen Wells Studio worked on the visual effects for Embarrassed Robots, a short film directed by the Artist & Designer Soomi Park. The project Embarrassed Robots questions whether emerging intelligent technologies will need to adopt human expressions and emotions in order to integrate better into our lives. In addition to the work for the film we also collaborated on the concept development, and provided a series of prototype animations to inform the design direction of the robot.
