Patrick H. Willems makes his entire living making videos about the art and technique of filmmaking, and he knows his subject material in great depth. And, purely by accident, while creating a fictional narrative in which to doughnut his serious critique and analysis of the art of making motion pictures, created a science fiction epic.

Instead, the centerpiece of the story is CHARL, which stands for Clout-Hungry Artificial Robotic Life Form. Weilding a piece of technology called a “shape shifter”, CHARL presents in our universe as a coconut.
