PHI KAPPA PHI RECOGNITION AWARD, University of Southern California. For “I Am Become Death” demonstrating the moral complications of atomic weapons.
As an enormous fan of science-fiction, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for 1950’s “B-movies” like The Day the Earth Stood Still. This short is my attempt at infusing a historically-based narrative (Oppenheimer and Einstein were friends, Oppenheimer was indeed wrought with guilt for creating the Bomb) with the tone and style of 1950’s science-fiction.
