De-extinction (2014) Film, colour. Running Time 12 min 35sec – This film was inspiring because it created an atmosphere.The floating rocks and the rich colour couldn’t help but induce wonder about the world of the fly. I am thinking of creating a film about the worm’s world. This kind of aesthetic could work well.
