As Organism (2021) - IMDb

Join Rachel Sellers and Alan Watts for a journey in scale from the subatomic world to the edge of the cosmos as they open your eyes to the possibilities of the universe as a single organism. Discover the range of patterns that design the world around us and the mathematical properties inherent in the building blocks of everything we know.


With this understanding of the world around us we can learn to comprehend our perceived enemies' point of view and hopefully treat our fellow man a little better. There isn't much hope for society and civilization as we know it if we can't get along. We are in the midst of a global societal collapse and it is important to show films like this so we can possibly slow it down and maybe even stop it before it's too late. STOP HATING PEOPLE BEFORE YOU MEET THEM. Please?

As Organism - SCRIPT to INDIE

As Organism | Film Threat

As Organism. IndyRed's review of the short film, As Organism.


Excerpts from these interviews:


“As Organism is a blazingly fast documentary that takes its queues from the original Bill Nye the Science Guy show from the 90s and throws in a wallop of caffeine.”

 

“If you think a science documentary has to be super boring, think again... this short film is absolute proof of that.”


“If you want a great masterclass of how to edit for interest, As Organism would work wonderfully as a teaching tool but make no mistake, you just may find yourself lost in the film. I'm pretty confident that was the plan all along.”

 

“It's loud, and it's fun, and it also teaches you something.”

 

“The style is 100% catchy: thumbs up and four stars.”

 

“There is more non-human about you than what is actually human”

 

“This lower-budget short film has outdone plenty of the big guy productions I've seen from a technical standpoint.”

 

“As for the film in its entirety? Excellent. Very well done.”

 

“It has no problem keeping you hooked no matter what you believe.”

 

“As it was stated in the film, "As Organism" could lead to an overload of the mind - but as long as you keep a little of what you've seen in the back of your head, your perception of things may forever be altered.”

 

“There's nothing basic about this short film - at all.”

 

“We are barraged with one video image after the other. It’s vibrant, colorful, and relentless.”


“Moe Taylor’s As Organism is a documentary short, shot in a visually over-stimulating MTV style that is hard to pull off and so easy to fail. In Taylor’s case, he found the secret, and it works.”

 

“There are so many projects out there and that most of them are just retreads of stories, but apparently new takes on concepts are still out there to be found, and that is nice to know.”

 

“Great job on the project and I am glad it looks like As Organism is being recognized for the quality project that it is.”

the Yeti Spaghetti experiment.

The Discovery

One day Moe saw a homeless hip hop artist named Yeti Spaghetti rapping for spare change downtown and stopped to listen for a minute. He was entertained so he bought the man a meal, listened to his story and got to know him. Eventually Moe decided to help the struggling artist and produce an album for him at the BrainDagger studio. Moe saw potential in his raw style and convinced him to serve out his time in county jail for a warrant so he could make money from his music legally. Then he was to go to rehab in exchange for the funding of a studio album. One year later and he’s already released two hit singles, “Dopeboy (feat. Queso Blanco[Moe])” and "Flyguy (feat. Queso Blanco) (Moe laid down the tracks). he reached #1 on the reverbnation charts, has over nine million views on Soundcloud, airplay in 16 countries and released his first album “Cleveland” on Mar 15 2019. His life is going in a whole new direction. CLICK ON THE LINKS!!!
