My graduate film in National Taiwan Normal University, Department of Design in 2015.
The animated protagonists of the film “Greedy Germ” live in a microscopically small world.
They are organisms and germs, friendly and timid little creatures that help each other.
Oneday, however, a mysterious intruder appears and ruthlessly destroys their peaceful coexistence.
The story was inspired by students’ reflections on pressing issues, such as the subject of food safety. Through the example of the destroyed life structures of the creatures in the film, “Greedy Germ” wants to illustrate that obtaining power is always linked to having a direct effect on society. Abusing power as well as blindly following orders will inevitably lead to injustice.
The film aims to point out the significance of the actions of each individual and thus the responsibility they have for the next generation.
