“Greedy Germ”-Yu Hsu

18 Dec

This adorably designed little film is psychedelic comfort food. The Super Mario style 8-bit soundtrack and the colorful bouncy characters inspire thoughts of cotton candy and weird stuffed animals. Note how the color pallette aligns with the newly announced Pantone Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

From the vimeo description:

“The animated protagonists of the film “Greedy Germ” live in a microscopically small world.

They are organisms and germs, friendly and timid little creatures that help each other.
Oneday, however, a mysterious intruder appears and ruthlessly destroys their peaceful coexistence.

The story was inspired by students’ reflections on pressing issues, such as the subject of food safety. Through the example of the destroyed life structures of the creatures in the film, “Greedy Germ” wants to illustrate that obtaining power is always linked to having a direct effect on society. Abusing power as well as blindly following orders will inevitably lead to injustice.
The film aims to point out the significance of the actions of each individual and thus the responsibility they have for the next generation.”
