Is hindsight 20:20? Does history reveal or obscure the truth? Can we predict the future? Will history repeat itself? Are we in control?

Technical Details

The film was made with Maya and is comprised entirely of Z-depth images. Z-depth is a black & white data-driven format native only to CG animation. It is used in post production to alter the perception of depth in digitally rendered images. It interprets objects within a scene according to distance: those closest to camera are black and those furthest away are white. Details are lost at either end of the spectrum, and are likewise revealed within the middle distance.
