"Microbes" is a motion design piece about the evolutionary development of microbes, or more specifically, the symbiotic relationship between microbes and the human body. The early stages of life stemmed from microbes, and as such, all bodily systems exist and formed in some way as an extension from these early beginnings. The majority of the scenes in the motion design piece transpire underwater to illustrate the concept of the earliest microbes that sprang and thrived in the ocean. The scenes imagined are intended to provide a visual metaphor for the vital purpose of the microbe; the audience will be introduced to the delicate bubbles, human forms, and anthropomorphic microbes to demonstrate the necessity of this symbiotic dynamic to nutrition, energy and ultimately life. The watercolor texture, along with the lullaby music box soundtrack, creates a mysterious yet quirky style due the enigmatic nature of this relatively unknown science.
