The Singularity

THE SINGULARITY is a stop motion short originally edited as a six episode web mini-series. It is scored with music and sound from the album Future Former Self by Brooklyn band CHAPPO. Their album and lyrics as well as The Singularity revolve around the story of Rene Cogito traveling alone to the center of a black hole in order to communicate with a parallel universe and save mankind. As Rene journeys toward the singularity, his dreams merge into his waking life, his perception of time becomes a transparent flip book shifting in and out of focus, and his reality combusts and melds together. Staring infinity in the face, will the madness take over or will he glimpse the constancy of his own self? This project is a DIY experiment in the evolution of storytelling. It exists in this new era of the internet where the lines of art, storytelling and music continue to blur and get redefined. The Singularity was written and directed by self-taught animator and artist Alex Chappo.
