Storyline

A boy, in a small boat with his dog, is rowing upstream on an industrial section of the Ottawa River. Freezing that image in time, one can clearly him with the naked eye from several meters away. Continually pulling back, he, then the river, then the country and continent, then the Earth, then the solar system, then the galaxy go out of view, he not even a speck within the cosmos. Continually moving back in, one can see that there is a mosquito on his arm, see the birthmarks on his exposed skin, see his skin cells and then see the nature of those cells, those cells which could not be seen even a few meters away.

Very Simple but Quite Poignant
27 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The premise here is quite simple. Begin by focusing on a boy in a boat with his dog. Now pan back. Keep moving until you have slipped the bonds of earth and moved farther and farther away, until you reach a sort of vast nothingness. Now, return to that figure and go into the micro-universe, moving toward the atomic world. This is something we all think about as we recognize a universe we can't truly understand or fathom. Well done. Should appeal to children as a talking point.
