"Hey there, my name is loïc bramoullé, and I will present you my new short film, strange alloy.
So last year, in december, I decided to visit myanmar, on my own, so i could take the time to shoot some kinf of, experimental short film, a mix of district 9, wich I'm very found of, and samsara, teh film that gave me the idea to visit myanmar.
So there I shot many pictures and videos, and I started to sketch the world I wanted to build for the film.
while writting the speach, I was mostly inspired by my studies, trough documentaries and articles, of geostrategic clandestines operations during the cold war, and studies of bouddhist philosophies.
That is where the grimm but peacefull tone of the film comess from.
So tehre is this space dragons, reaching earth, a long time after the collapse of humanity. They are not interested by any of earth remaining ressources, as they can mine anywhere in space, but they are immensely interested by the history of teh civilisation that appeared here, for the impact that can have on their own philosophies.
They already found many planets sheltering lifeforms, but finding teh remains of a completly different civilisation that started to reverse engeneer the universe itself, it is indeed for them, priceless.
They want to know how humanity appeared, what it discovered, and how it ended. To be able to explore the surface, they've been xenorforming slitly the atmosphere, with minimal impact on the biosphere, with immense self building structures made of an alloy mixing earth less exotic mineral, called bauxite, and artificial nano organisms.
Now they are able to breath, the structures are entering a phase of controlled mollecular decay, that will leave the earth untouched, as the sanctuary it is for them.
As they are cold blooded beings, and after evolving free from the reptilian brain, they did not developed death fearing religions, but rather a bunch of philosophies, aiming for the conexion of everything, and the decryption of the world.
That's why our little buddy, chose to study evolution of bouddhism, trough its relation with human brain."
