What sparks creation?

Jacob Topen, 23

A film shot in isolation. Having this time in isolation, I found myself struggling to be creative. This led me to consider what it is that ignites the creation in us as human beings. Because of this, the first moment of creation really fascinated me. This short is an interpretation of what the spark of creativity might look like, using Biblical themes from Genesis. The film starts with visuals and audio which are initially alien but then slowly evolve to look and sound more familiar, as the paper is formed through flames.
