When Veridian, an estranged son, receives his late alchemist father Nicolas' inheritance (voice of Academy Award nominated John Hurt), he is exposed to the ill-fated reality that his father built a tumultuous gold-making machine powered by his own memories. The film takes viewers on an enchanted journey through the vessels of the machine in exploration of the alchemist's most precious memories, all in an attempt to give Veridian one last life lesson and save his relationship with his daughter (voice of Eloise Webb) from following down the same fateful path.
Writer/Director Carlos Andre Stevens is a former Student Academy Awards finalist for his animated short film "Toumai", and an award-winning director for his commercial work.

Carlos lived a childhood of cultural diversity. His parents are world-renowned psychotherapists who fostered his creativity with a colorful upbringing. When he was a child, his grandparents lived in a flower-painted school bus and made eccentric films with Carlos and his sister. As a film student, he naturally gravitated towards design, illustration and animation to tell his stories. In 2009, he was hired by the acclaimed design and animation studio Superfad in Seattle, Washington, where he creative directed award-winning advertising campaigns for Sprint, Sony and Voila. In 2011, he moved to New York City to open the east coast office of west coast-based design powerhouse Logan, as director/creative director. In 2013, Laika Animation Studios ("Coraline, Paranorman, The Box Trolls") brought Carlos back to Portland, Oregon.
