No need for going happy, it just has to make sence.
Ok, why he is to dependent on the machines. Well, maybe he doesn´t have to me so serious, indeed. Like his personality. I just want to make him looks serious at the first time, when we see him, for the effect "Watch out, we have a badass over here", and also, when the man with serious face start panicking, due to the think, which is written in the letter - there must be something really important. He could be a dump-genius, like Sheldon from BBT, or Einstein afterwards. But from the start, it could be better for him, to have a cold-brilliant-scientist face. He can stand a little bit in a shadows, and after he read that letter, we can change the light and BAM - dirty guy, with some smushy little things in his hair...
Maybe, we start to think about what is written in that letter. Why does he need a clean shirt? For who he would do all these things?
One of our idea was, that its going to be a love letter. His lost love, from the past is coming to visit him. Then we can have ending, like she is not coming, or he will split that coffee, and she is going to be a bitch, and after she see him, she will slap the door.
Or it could be his mother! And for her, he is always going to be that little weird sweet boy, playing with his toys. And everyone is cleaning up, when the mum is coming over. And what is she going to do the him, when she will see him in such a mess...I don´t know. What would your mother do?
And why he is so addicted to robots? Maybe after many years of inventing, he could just forgot, how to do all these things. Because he is much more focused on the science! Looking into eye of the God. Or something like that...
And don´t worry, I don´ t think, we would end up like ten jehož jméno se nevyslovuje. It didn´t had a story at all.

Yeah, he could forgot how to do these ordinary things. But maybe he just lost reason for doing them. Imagine you are living only with robots, which don’t need food, sleep etc. The feeling of hunger is suddenly something strange, you can’t explain, but at the same time you can’t stick with this problem, because you have more important and interesting work to do – you’re a scientist! So he need these helpful robots maybe more than he would admit.

Mothers are great. Everyone loves and is afraid of them for special occasions. That’s what makes them perfect for being „bad guy“. And…what about joining these two women together? There could be loving mother losing her patience, finally going to visit her son after some years in order to find him a wife. And she brings with her his old love, who is now respectful expert too (she and proff probably have different theories in the past, they argued, get appart, were rivals for some time until their relationship turn cold in all ways) And here comes the change, butr everything depends on the shirt. It has to be perfect for both of them. Damn :!:

Or...OR, after he splitted that coffe, there will be a ring bell. He will look at the main door, fear in his eye. The doors are opeing, and we see a black silhouettes of some tall people, like 3. The bright light fell on his face. And then the camera change, and we see from the sight of these personnes, above their shoulders - we see a proffesor in a room for psychos, in the complete mess, surrounded by robot toys. The doctor in the middle, look to the papers, and make some cross, or something like that. They will turn, the professor reach his hand to them, but the will slam the door, and he will fall to the darkness. The end.

It must be international and clear. Simply ideas. Bringing mother and the wife-for-order like a girl from his past...would be a little complicated to explain. You can write it into letter, but we are trying to avoid that. In the case of mother, there could be just "love, mum". in the case of his love, there could a be a printed lipstick. But I have no idea how would you simplified mother and his beloved. I see this movie to be long about 5 minutes, not more. We should stick to the main line, explaining relationships between characters would split a story line a bit.

Ok, some more stuff, to the clean up.
This is how I imagine this scene (latest idea). After professor reads that letter, he should take a look on a clock, and then back again into the letter, where should be written some hour. So we would know, how much time he has. But it should be that much anyway. After this, he should take a look across the lab, so we would be able to see this mess. Then we would start running around, and switching on the robots.
Then we can move to his room. The camera would be there before him, pointing at the door, which are going to be sharply opened when professor enters. Then we will see the room from his point of view - the small messy room, just with the bed, wardrobe, and maybe a basin in the corner. He can switch on the robots even in here, he could get shaved by the robot, then he can opened the wardrobe and goes like "oh shit". And then the big invention scene can begin.

Ok, only thing is the small room. It is really hard to explain the small room by camera, since it is a small room. You can´t see it from one place, only parts of it (except from top, but that´s like shooting diablo). (or i think...)
I would preffer to create 2-3 giant halls connected by lot portals (no teleportation, simply hole in wall) to let the audience understand the laboratory. EG one will be a library/concept room/think-room, second something like factory, where concept creation takes place and where the robot will be constructed and third the living room/bed room and so on. All the humanity things room. Kitchen, bar, bedroom living room that bathroom is a good idea i think.

Those three would be connected in triangle so audience will easily realize from every shot, where they are, because there will almost often by something visible (from other rooms).

This concept will also allow us to create lot of bridges and those things we all love, and create a complicated architecture.

Again just an idea... come on fight it!

Okey, okey. Why not. I would just connect the "thinking" room together with the lab. I would make a rather "thinking corner". I posted one image of it into Architectonic style, and dropbox. Its that picture, with windows, columns, stairs and a table. That could be a thinking space. the creation space could be a big hall, with tables, some machines for creating machines...

Ok! they´re great! Great Great Great! So glad that we have the very same sense for that (except, you´re a bit smoother). I´ll put them into gallery ok? So we can look at them any time and see them all together. (That system of posting images is a bit weird, i know and will think up something beter, i promise...) It´s almost time to start model and let it kickin! It´s so tempting... But... AAAAAA!!!! I would like to work on it so much!!!

But until then we can "sketch forward" much more, that will not be harmful later on, especialy in CG phase i think.
