‘Crossover’

I was browsing through Vimeo the other day and I came across this short called Crossover which was directed by Fabian Grodde. There’s no official description of the video but my take is that it’s about the spread of christianity in the world, specifically in less civilized areas. Of course this is all told through tiny stink bugs and a giant spider, but I’m sure you’ll see what I’m talking about.

The 3D effects in the video should also be mentioned because I didn’t even realize it was 3D at first. The way the stink bugs are animated is incredibly lifelike, I kept thinking it was amazing that they got their little legs to move so fluidly. Really beautiful work whether you agree or disagree with the videos underlying message.
