Chiwow is from the planet Smart. He crash lands in Dundee and is consequently subjected to captivity by the Shared Intelligence Union (SIU) whereby international diplomats with special clearance can inspect and bid on property pertaining, found and created by the host country. There has been considerable interest in the Live Specimen and after much diplomatic squabbling, the Highlands’ Shared Intelligence Base has received a substantial bid for the transfer of Chiwow to an Antarctic base.
Chiwow is top secret, but EMI (Emotional Memory Intelligence) has met every important person there is to meet. Neither care for their current surroundings, so together, escape, and go on an adventurous journey helped by a human couple that can’t help but squabble about everything. Least of all the two non-humans that now accompany them.
Chiwow and Emi is my first animation. It was created while studying at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (Dundee University). It took me roughly nine weeks to put the short film together. I have always liked the idea of an alien and robot forming an unbreakable friendship, so I now plan to write the full script.
