The Death of an Insect

Erään hyönteisen tuho
Director: Hannes Vartiainen, Pekka Veikkolainen

Suomija, Animation, documentary, experimental, 2010, 7 min
In a lifeless urban landscape where time itself has stopped its crawl, a mad ballet is commencing and a newly hatched butterfly is about to die. This tragic story was constructed using dead insects gathered from forgotten attics and tool sheds, between window panels and cobwebs. It combines a number of animation techniques from classic stop-motion animation to animated 3D models of x-ray CT-scanned insects.
