Michelle BoudewijnsIllustrated & Animated Storytelling Breda
This animated short tells the story of a couple, Chris and Syl, who have always had their dream to live in space. They grew up in the 60s and 70s when there was a lot of talk about space travel. No matter how impossible it seemed, they took their chance and moved into space.
This way of living comes with new and strange problems. They have to be completely self-sufficient, and find creative solutions for challenging problems. How on earth would they keep things from floating away?
The animation focuses on how everyday life challenges become major life problems. On earth an electricity blackout would not be a big problem but in space, everything works on electricity, even the oxygen.
The short film shows a unique and fun way of a life in space, and how beautiful it can be.
