Locked inside a room, an inventor tries to solve a mysterious problem. During the last year, we all lived as suspended in isolated boxes. And alone, in a box, It is really easy to get lost. I started from this sensation to work to my first 3D short movie for an academic exam. Boxed is a story of an endless, bitter sweet search for something lost. Through a simple 3D exercise, I wanted to mix quantum theories with some interpretations of Erik Satie “Gnossiennes” in order to tell a story about obsessions, able to slowly cut yourself out of life. Ironically, making you lose exactly what you were looking for.
