The initial concept for this piece involved taking the audience on a journey into a vibrant wasp's nest. Slowly, the project evolved into a conversation of abstract imagery within a real kaleidoscope.
The film was created entirely in-camera without the use of any CGI or compositing. The film was shot using the technique of stop-motion with the assistance of a Motion Control rig.

The music for this film was created by Daniel Eaton. Eaton blended many of the styles and themes discussed in an early meeting, and ultimately crafted an excellent aural compliment to the visuals.
