Finding himself tragically unable to complete Mary was an Alien owing to production problems related to constructing a castle and accurately portraying space travel to the extent of his wishes, in a chasm of frustration Brett felt inspired to write a three-minute short titled Rather Be A Robot Than Be A Human. This he could easily make and the concept was simple: first a futuristic newscast on the fascinating topic of developmental and cognitive robots beginning to learn about the pains of life. Over an exclusive interview an android says, “I can describe the very day, the very moment, in which I truly felt myself grow from being a robot to being alive,” and okay the android would just be a human, a friend of Brett’s he had in mind, and this would establish that androids look just like humans, can’t tell the difference. Second, pull back from the newscast and a person is watching it: the best actor Brett could find for the job, male or female, young or old. The android would look so bummed and as if they couldn’t even anything seriously, and they would put a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger. Brett planned to spray red paint on the back wall after the gunshot, Herschell Gordon Lewis-like, but most importantly he would add in the sound effect of scrambled circuits at the time of the brain blood splatter. That sound effect, he felt in his soul, would promote the audience to consider the existential question: what about when robots feel human?
