Summary:
For centuries philosophers debated on the origins of stars. Now, science gives us a theory involving billions of years and flaming gases. But Scientist Mordecai knows the truth. This animated short is about a character who lives in Antarctica and creates stars out of snowballs. When a gap in the starry sky is detected, he attempts to fill the void by shooting a new snowball into the sky. Unfortunately, the plan proves to be an unsucceeded attempt.

This film was completed in the Animation Production course at ACCAD. Students from the design department collaborated with computer science & engineering students to create procedural elements in the animation.
