HIVE - ADAM CIOLFI (2016)
Written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Adam Ciolfi, HIVE is an impressive stop-motion animation about a dying colony. Apparently taking inspiration from the collapse of global bee colonies, but laden with philosophical ideas, HIVE follows the last few survivors of a dying world as they search for meaning in their final hours. It can be hard for non-animators to appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into making a stop motion film, but this is very well done, with smooth moving shots giving it a great cinematic feel. Ciolfi had previously spent 15 years making an animated feature film called Lady of Names. If you like HIVE by Adam Ciolfi be sure to rate it and share it.
