"POUR GENERATION" Animated Short by Patrick Smith


A reproductive ritual is Interrupted by a winsome mutation. The "freak" is immediately ostracized by his homogenous fore-bearers. The solitude ends when he comes across another genetic misfit, together they spawn a new generation of unique and vibrant individuals.

Modifications in the genetic sequence results in diversity among organisms. These changes occur at many different levels, and they can have a variety of consequences. This film depicts a homogenous world of wine glasses, we see a small vitreous tribe that unwillingly spawns a vibrant genetic misfit. They immediately shun the "Freak" in the cruelest way, leaving the oddity alone and hopeless. "Pour Generation" is the 5th film in the series of films that take place in a world of metaphorical wine and cocktail glasses. Building on the main idea set forth in the Oscar® qualified short film "Pour 585."
