**Award Winning** Sci-Fi Short Film: “Clarity” – by Dustin Brown | TheCGBros
The human brain is the most complex system in the known universe We know we are approaching the deepest of mysteries 100 billion neurons and trillions of interconnections This is truly the cosmos within To navigate and manipulate this dense web of neural circuitry We need to create a map of the brain a wiring diagram Nearly 3 years in, the Clarity prototype is on the verge of making this a reality This is the holy grail in Understanding and treating neurological diseases. I Urge you all to support this project We are at the edge of understanding You cannot put a price or a timeline on this We will produce results Well, I think it’s like 7:15, well, I know mom it’s a red eye that’s why it’s early Yeah, everyone’s leaving for the break Um I’m gonna call you back. Okay. Bye I’d like to start with a posterior section 120 kilowatts Skin abrasions on the abdomen and limbs they’re looking stressed. That’s normal Great It’s the same no progress I’ve gotta keep working over the break What do you mean -It’s publisher perish you know
-Publisher? Why so soon? I thought you wanted to wait for human trial.
-Well something’s changed. We can’t… we can’t wait What did Arthur say? Is he pulling the plug? Get back to work -Okay, I have a red eye. I’m supposed to go home and visit my family remember? -Cancel it.
-I can’t cancel it it My whole family is there and my mom’s not doing well Okay You could be there comforting her you could be here changing the world That’s an easy decision to make when you don’t have a family Every tell you my father was a physicist I won’t buy It was a calculating man Very precise as if he lived in some walled off place in his mine But when he looked at me as a whole face lit up In her life came out Physics was in this world I was You ever heard of Joseph Brenner No exactly What if we section the accelerating voltage Sorry get some rest we start early tomorrow You did good Thanks, dr. Brenner Anna Anna Have you been here all night I Figured it out You can’t do that It’s too dangerous I’ll have that high a voltage who knows what might happen not to mention. It’s illegal This was your idea I know but it just so it’s working, but are you happy? There’s another way we could narrow the wavelength which lowers a kvp while keeping the resolution intact What you think I hadn’t thought of that problem is the mice are too small Listen, the mice are sick. There must be some kind of radiation back scatter. You can’t pretend you didn’t notice that it’s worth the risk I’m not your student anymore. I’m your lab partner, and I’m trying to tell you this is dangerous. So listen to me We are not equals Ι Have to get this thing out of me if I don’t finish this I’m nothing I Think we should take a break come back in a couple weeks and we’ll just see where we’re at you Don’t know it yet But that moment of discovery Is the most amazing feeling in the world Hey, it’s always reminded me when I was a child oh My god Your hands with the radiation were you ever going to tell me I Didn’t sign up for this I Chose you This is my legacy, I am giving it I don’t want it You cannot ask me to be okay with this Sam. You know me. I Don’t have a family. I don’t have a life. This is my everything. Well, what about me? What if I’ve been exposed? We are small insignificant Long after we are gone this will exist You’re right you are nothing
