Jupiter II (2014) - Beautifully shot science fiction film is set in a distant futuristic world where a young couple is exploring an infertile planet. It's an abstract piece of art so its open for an interpretation, it reminds of 2001: A Space Odyssey and music videos by Tool.

Any composition needs to begin with one or two main elements. The smaller the elements, the greater number of them there should be. You need to start with one or two main ideas and gradually build up the smaller elements until the space becomes rich with life. Simple comments can deploy new worlds and expose things that were on the surface, but you had not noticed - Maxim Zhestkov
