    Mirage (2014) is a short hybrid 2D / 3D animation, which explores the essence of memory and its significance in our lives.

    Through beautiful illustrations, Mirage shows the serendipitous convergence of our memories in the formation of a man's body.

    Everything he saw became part of his body.

    Our memories are more often than not unstable and fluid retellings of past events that are presented through subjective interpretations.

    This makes them very inaccurate depictions of our pasts.

    In this short film, His memories, like all our memories, are illusions in a novel of his own creation.

    The truth behind these stories is fragile and easily lost.

    On the one hand, we chose to forget something or change the memories to create a different world: a world we feel comfortable with, a world we understand, a world as much as we hope it to be.

    On the other hand, things will never be forgotten, as their knowledge and influence will never disappear.

    The appearance of the truth might seem impossible to be restored.

    But maybe that is not the case any more. Software : Cinema 4D / After Effects / Photoshop / Flash / Protools
