There are some talented film students out there. The monthly output of Savannah College of Art and Design’s SCAD Shorts (Tilzy.TV page) and its associated alumni-packed production co., Dandy Dwarves are prime examples. Duelity from Vancouver Film School is another.

 

Created motion designers Ryan Uhrich and Marcos “Boca” Ceravolo, it’s a beautifully animated, side-by-side display of creationism and evolution, couched in one another’s rhetoric and symbols.

### The General Organization of Development labs (GOD) is displayed under a smart, British voiceover as a master watchmaker, grounded in analysis and empirical data, carefully constructing the universe and the devising cold calculations that led to human life. It looks like those Japanese flash games that waste my Fridays, except with a theological storyline.

Religious structures, figures, and icons portrayed through a stained glass aesthetic interact with celestial bodies to bring about the earth’s creation while a bombastic narrator with bad Elizabethan grammar narrates you along the story of Evolution. I don’t get the Birth of Venus reference, but it all looks pretty.

 

 

That could be said of the whole thing, actually. All theories of the nature of human progress aside, it’s pretty to watch.
