I know Joe wanted an animated film, but I wanted to see what I could do with this as well. I still think it could use some adjustments, but I like the idea of it starting small with something like catching fireflies to trying to contain the whole universe in a pickling jar and then coming back in again (I don't know, maybe I've been watching Powers of 10 too many times), but I think ozie's piano piece fits this idea perfectly.
Let me know any comments/criticisms/suggestions you have.
