With a total budget of $150 and some favours, this miniature space odyssey — winner of the Viewer's Choice award at 2002's Handle the Jandal contest— packs a supernova sized punch. With slick miniature work (skills honed on the sets of The Lord of the Rings and King Kong), director Olly Coleman achieves a tranquili mood that is in perfect harmony with the track. The Rhian Sheehan track features vocals by Lotus Hartley.
I made the capsule using sockets, nitrous canisters, and PVC pipe. Rhian's breath wouldn't condense on the window on set, so one of my biggest challenges was getting that effect in post [production].– Director Olly Coleman, May 2009
