    This was really cool. I always wonder how abstract films like these are planned out, do they have storyboards that match various frames or is it done straight ahead and the transitions and shapes and how they move is all come up with as they’re creating it? It looks like something that would be really difficult to board out and understand whats supposed to be happening.

    It is fairly interesting. Nice aesthetic ideas like switching from circles appearing within circles to circles to a trail of layered circles. And the shape layering is creatively done. It’s probably the most creative traditional Max Hattler film since AANAATT.
