Contest Name: The Hive Submission Date :06-09-2018, Uploaded By : Alexander Flatau
Directed By :  Alexander Flatau, student,,
Inspiration: Cadence is about the modern society and how the people live with the new technologies. The barrier between virtual reality and the real world becomes blurred and the people start to act like bees in a hive. They follow straigth rules and stop doing what they love. Cadence shows Antonio and some other people who try to get out of this behavoir and start to live again. The world acts like a Hive but there is always a way out.
