The Day You Were Born (2016)
An unbroken chain of events stretching back to the beginning of the known universe led up to the moment each of us were born. The story of the universe, then, is one we are intimately wrapped up in. It is a story of endless birth, death, rebirth, and recombination. This short film revisits key moments throughout this story, condensing 13.77 billion years of a constantly evolving universe into 3 minutes of stop-motion animation.
