Drop Out is a 3-minute animation with surreal horror elements. The short film portrays the circle of life in an artificial Science-Fiction world, which is controlled and observed by a disembodied force. The force selects the inhabitants of this world carefully.
Main theme of the film is the selection in our society. Essentially a natural process, but in this context it is portrayed very artificial, sterilized and implemented via very inhuman mechanics. The process of selecting humans is omnipresent in our society. It is executed in applications, immigrations, abortions and maybe in near future the pre-selection of the own children because of small unwanted genetic influences. The problem of the proceeding overpopulation and the consequent drastic reducing of resources give pre-selection also eligibility. The film describes a fictional vision, if one of the last ethical hurdles is jumped: the large-area pre-selection of the next generation.
