RE:LEASE

Short movie

A musical travelogue through an atmospheric world in black white and red.

Blending live action and high speed liquids shots with 3D animation, we journey through this other-worldly environment, exploring the lyrical power of attraction and repulsion.
This abstract narrative was inspired by the experiments done with the particle collider at C.E.R.N. , where scientists are chasing after the elusive anti matter, seeking to redefine our understanding of physics and the universe.

This film transports this subatomic world into a tangible experience.
