While on vacations in south of France, we found a small scorpion (Euscorpius flavicaudis) and a spider (Araneus Diadematus). We put them together in a glass dish, with no escape, time for us to capture some action.
We can see scorpion sting in action around 3'21", but spider took probably some more...
Both of them were separated just after the last shot, and released in nature.
Music is "Croquis et agaceries d'un gros bonhomme en bois", from Erik Satie, played by Anne Queffélec.
When Ian awakes one Parisian morning, his girl is still asleep at his side. But things are all about to change with one glance in the mirror. Will the girl by his side know who he is? Will he even be able to taste his last cigarette?...

I had this idea of waking up one morning without knowing who you are. This is what took me to writing this story.
