The pallete is simple black and white, but striking in its composition and varied loop constructs. Directed by Nicolas Ménard for Nexus production, Illuminate‘s concept takes much of its inspiration from gaming culture:

In 1992, a man receives love letters in Korean. Since Google Translate doesn’t exist yet, he’s left confused. What could this mean?
Graphic aesthetic influenced by video games X (Gameboy) and Super World Runner (NES).
