Another one of our own. Dancing to enlightenment. On a production note, the light buzzing around the dancer towards the end actually is a previous and blurred version of the video that turned out to fit perfectly layered on top. Happy accidents, always great.
Beautiful and poetic short that explores the perception of the human body by taking it away. What remains are the mere shapes and movements which are only revealed through a bombardment of colourful dust and smoke.
“Evangelion’s Angel originates from the Christianity-based story of a spirit that serves the Creator. The Angels attack humans to take back the right to survive on earth. Appearing in this short film is the Third Angel, SACHIEL, who was the first to attack in 2015. It possesses a strong self-repair ability and wields a retractile lance-shaped weapon. He is to battle EVA Unit 02 according to the grand plan. In the film, the Angel’s look was put together by several well-known fashion designers, with a weapon that acts as an symbolic element.
Chinese traditional fire cupping therapy uses the cup as a tool, and heat to induce suction onto the acupuncture points. By destroying partial micro blood circulation, the therapy facilitates a new energy network to rebuild and renew metabolism to restore health.
In order for EVA Unit 02 to transform into The Beast, the red robot model with four eyes must be disconnected from power and entry plug and abandoned its humanity. Large amounts of pain is inflicted to undergo the process.
This film is a tribute to my favorite masterpiece – Neon Genesis Evangelion!” —Lu Yang
