PARADIGM (2013) - 3D Fractal Animated Short Film | HD by Chris D'Andrea

an experimental film in no language

PARADIGM is a 3D animated short film created by Christopher D'Andrea for his BFA senior project. Its a story between two fractal generated entities extremely diverse in their nature. As the two objects progress, they evolve and change in the world around them. Their ultimate interaction is not held back by their environment because finally, the pieces merge and collide.

The concept behind the film represents man-kinds untold story of its very near future. Here, the organic shape represents humanity, as we have grown from a single cell into an advanced space-faring species. The geometric object represents technology. When the two meet, it is up to the viewer to interpret whether technology will destroy or enhance us in the coming paradigm shift.

'I wanted the viewers to question where they stand on this matter. It's hard to imagine a world where man is completely merged with technology.. and yet again, it's even harder to imagine a world without it. Although this is my personal message in the film, I encourage everyone to walk away with their own interpretations.'

Enjoy :)
