Pohjankonna Oy - The Death of an Insect - Hanasaari A - Hannes Vartiainen and Pekka Veikkolainen - Music: Joonatan Portaankorva
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.
