CREATION by Sylvia Toy (Trailer) © 2018

CREATION is an experimental, greenscreen art film inspired by the Central African creator god, Mbombo, who created the world by vomiting it. The two main characters in CREATION are The First One (Night), who suddenly appears out of a void of light – i.e., a Big Bang event – and immediately vomits The Second One (God). The First One hates existence. The Second One loves existence so much that he/she begins vomiting all the parts of the Universe. My research has been developing characters, story, and the techniques for making the movie CREATION.
