Located in Melbourne's Federation Square, ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) commissioned Lycette Bros. to create a 30 second promotional trailer for their 'Movies that Matter' cinema program. We were given a largely open brief but one with a tight deadline and a limited budget.
Our response was to create a work that celebrated the nature of film making and how each part of the process is imperative to the success of the final outcome. The animation traverses through a number of levels of an ecosystem populated by 'cinebugs' (mechanical insects composed from camera and projector parts) that work together to create what will ultimately form on a cinema screen.
The music is an original composition by Markus Kellow, created specifically for the work.
