Harry Lagoussis is a filmmaker and cartoonist based in Athens, Greece. He has been a science geek ever since he read Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time as a teenager. This film was inspired by quantum weirdness, silent-era comedy films, consumer-video aesthetics and his cat allergy. You can find out more about his work at www.harrylagoussis.gr.
