Chapman film school over-achiever Tom Teller is the director behind Hum, a stunning and award-winning short film. Here, a sad robot relegated to a life of washing dishes runs on glimpses from the outside world found in the garbage—until a pair of downstairs visitors change his existence.
Yes, it’s reminiscent of Pixar’s WALL-E.
According to Teller, the film was a class project created on a $2,000 budget. Perhaps a more creatively satisfying and ultimately lucrative campus activity than that time I signed up for a credit card to get a free pizza.
