"Brain Divided": an animated story about a split personality, with a real twist
“Brain Divided”, a CGI animated short (5 minutes) by Josiah Haworth, Joon Shik and Joon Soo, and the Ringling College of Art and Design, has an odd concept, about a split personality.
An alien with a split brain codes a program to make two abducted humans go on a "test" date inside their space colony – it’s heterosexual and has plenty of male chivalry. But the split personality within the alien mind (split between red and blue moral values) causes the same among the male human character.
An odd sci-fi concept indeed. Remember “Donovan’s Brian” controlling the stock market (Lew Ayres) back in the early 1950s?
