This was a 'warm-up assignment' at Ryerson Film School. Essentially, the goal was to make a 1-3 minute film using a specific filmmaker as inspiration behind it. My inspiration for this film was Stanley Kubrick and the opening to 2001. I thought it would be interesting to do 'The Dawn of a New Civilization' as opposed to 'Dawn of Man'.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the only knowledge about humanity prior to 'the fire' has been passed down from generation to generation and misinterpreted. This film plays with the idea of how something incomprehensible to a certain group of people can result in it being something Devine, where as to people of this world, is simply a record player with music.
