Niels Prayer, Paris-based designer and director, is back with another visually stunning abstract short, Marvelous Machines. The film is a poetic story about consciousness and evolution. All 3D was completed in Houdini/Mantra, with compositing done in AE.

From Niels:

In a world without humans, machines start to think uniformally, as one single big mind. What if one machine tries to implement and create a better way of thinking in their mind's algorithm ?
Through this little short movie, using a lot of visual symbolism, we are witnessing the creation of a singular mind, through different steps of cousciousness.

Finally, when the creation was done, the ultimate intelligence the machines have built is the most marvelous one, the human mind.
