"Sunspring": sci-fi screenplay with script written by a computer

Ars Technica has posted 10-minute short film, “Sunspring”, where a computer has written the screenplay, based on certain parameters, like a "48 Hour Film Festival" based on a line, a prop and a character.

The actual film (seems to come from the UK) is directed by Oscar Sharp and starts Thomas Middleditch, Elizabeth Grey and Humphrey Ker.

The characters are floating in a spaceship pod set up like a workshop inside and ponder whether they are real humans or robots or something in between, as a new baby is supposed to arrive – but the old-fashioned way?  It seems to matter what will happen when they get close enough to the next star whose solar system they will visit.   Middleditch is cute.
