A lonely creature, on a lonely planet, abducted into the false allure of a computer generated world.

Don’t ever let yourself become mesmerized by your own artwork.

A quote from a professor that Joshua Planz and John Mattiuzzi based their incredible and expressive short film on. After that Joshua and John were just looking for a challenge after getting bored with the mediocre picks from large streaming sites, where they felt like films were selected more on their visual aesthetics rather than their content.

After several months of brainstorming they decided to create a mini 5 second short that combined John’s composition abilities with Joshua’s 3D knowledge, to take the work to a whole new level. But after initial storyboarding the film kept on growing to 15 seconds, then 45, 2 minutes and finally to 4 minutes.

What Josh and John managed to create is a mesmerizing piece that will devour you despite the uncomfortable incertitudes. It’s to no surprise that John created such a personal film that for him depicted his witnessing of a close individual’s route to heroin addiction.
