The story behind the film

This project represents the melt down of old, primitive, egoistic behavior, portraying the instinct of admiration, insecurity and territoriality as a destructive standard. The falling of ego in a world that needs to be collective and no longer has time to sustain what came before.

Two separate solid objects melt and become one single blended liquid.

It’s a low budget project that was shot on film and have the addition of some 3D techniques, such as photogrammetry and kinect capture camera.
