Short Film: The Origin of Creatures

Edging on horror, this bizarre little gem is a metaphorical re-interpretation of the Biblical tale of the Tower of Babel.  It sort of looks like something Time Burton might have directed, but it feels like an old Gumby short.  In any case, as the leaves fall and everyone gears up for Halloween, it fits the mood of the season. 
"The storyline of The Origin of Creatures is based on one of the most well-known tales about collaboration, the Tower of Babel. This tale is transformed and twisted and is set in an imaginary future, after the world is hit by a catastrophe. Among the remains of a devastated city lives that what is left of humanity. Human bodies are divided into separated parts of the body and are fused to special beings. Together, these creatures form a colony, they can only survive when collaborating. In the rubble of destroyed buildings they are trying to build a nest as large and as high as possible, so that the colony’s queen gets enough sunlight to reproduce, but due to miscommunication this mission is doomed to fail."
