    • Synopsis
    • Destroy explores the concept of identity of time and cyclic transformation of existence through a classic metaphysical science fiction story. Taking steps from the theories of Erwin Laszlo about the process of events, it leads to several steps of storytelling: the romance of the protagonist fall for the girl, the drama of her dying for a dark disease, the peeping of the girl by the guard, the thrilling of her crazy plan of destruction, and the supernatural twist of the happening. In term of Virtual Reality experience, Destroy drives you in an augmented world of spying cameras, then leads into a rollercoaster on the neurons of the brain's protagonist, until experiencing the unthinkable horror of being into the core of the atomic mushroom. For creating the nuclear explosion we passed through several techniques. We recreated a live action version of some classic Japanese anime transfiguration of the atomic bomb with into body dissolving in light, a fire pillar that swallows the characters and the devastation of the explosion that annihilates everything.
