Hi all!

I'm programming the weekly film screening night in Rotterdam for the Rotterdam Collective. Each night there is a main feature and a few shorts or video clips. Each night is a different theme, and they're surprise themes, so not announced.

In a few weeks we want to show a nature documentary about insects. It's about an hour long so we have plenty of space for shorts and video clips. I was racking my brain for cool shorts about insects or other microscopic natural things, but fell on my face.

I'd love to hear about some awesome work which must be out there.

I remember there being an animated short about insects made from old electronic parts like capacitors and IC's and so on. I've searched the net for a bit but came back empty. Does anyone know what the name of this thing is?

Isabella Rossellini's Green Porno had a lot of bug segments-

Hey, but, I could use more short films... love watching them, any others are more than welcome... we need short films to go in front of Bronson, One Point O, Persepolis, Blade Runner and more...
