Copy Shop

The actual plot of this one, though interesting and fun to watch, isn’t exactly one you’ve never seen before. Man discovers a copy machine that makes copies of humans, his clones get out of hand. What makes this short truly original was the way in which it was made. The film was shot digitally, but then photocopies were made of those images and animated to make the short we’re actually watching. (Is it live action or animation? I’m not 100% sure.) There are a lot of interesting thoughts here about cloning, and the method of construction definitely adds an extra layer to that. Are we truly watching the original film, or just another clone?
