We had a robot cameraman, we named him “Charlie.” Something got off with his wiring because Charlie had a quirky personality for a bot and an unusually robust artificial intelligence. One day we sent him jumping off a roof for a first-person aerial shot. You know it was great footage, but watching it back was a little unsettling. He seemed to have a problem on the way down like he could sense his own impending doom. He started freaking out like he was real, like he was a real person. He was actually screaming before he hit the ground and exploded into an irretrievable mess… I guess that’s a good way to put it. We used a lot of expendable camera bots on this job, but, we’ll never forget ol’ Charlie. Charlie exploded into an irretrievable mess!
