Commentaries and bibliography
Note Of Intent :
This film is my personal statement on the scientific explanation of reality. It will explore scientific and pseudo-scientific definitions of different bug species and their mating habits compared with human behaviorism and the psychology of love, obsession and delusion. Aesthetically the film will be broken into chapters titled in Latin on the screen in order to strengthten the parody on science.
The cast of two main characters, intentionally exaggerated away from conventional cinematic reality is crucial to this film in terms of their chemistry and absurdity, which fit my understanding of life.
