'Genesis' is an animated film that traces a punctuated evolutionary course from the big bang to the arrival of industry and resulting impact on a planet. This journey, accompanied by an audio track of music and sounds is more allegory than documentary. This piece was created entirely using Adobe After Effects. The sound track was composed using open source sounds effects, loops and synthesized sounds.
