Within Tape, there was experimentation with the concept of 'a film within a film' showing light on how a film affects the viewer.
This concept translates into the first scene.
A young boy awakes in the night to the feel of static, he follows the light towards the TV and in front lies a VHS tape, written on is the word 'Birth'. Curiosity take over when the boy plays the tape. The tape contains the voice of a man explaining to the boy (through the TV) that tonight there will be a series of VHS's. And through playing these he will learn various aspects of his past present, future and innermost fears. Tape continues with the 'film within a film' theme. As the boys night progresses, each VHS has a deeper connection than the former, culminating in an intense experimental film style, (each different style correlates to the VHS being played). These differing styles, claymation animation and Time-lapse, Contrast to the simplistic location, formulating an aesthetically pleasing assault to the senses.
