FLUFFICTION introduces a kingdom of imaginary fluffy creatures – their types, ecology, and relations with humans – using jaunty wind instrumental music and crisp rhythmical narration. Despite the flat image plane that uses loops, copy-paste, and linear camera work, the detailed explanations and painstakingly accurate descriptions create realistic images, leaving the audience with the impression that the fluffy creatures truly exist all around us.
