Cycle is a short story conceived in a storyboarding class in 2010. It follows Chi as it is born and grows up. The character designs are intended to be abstract and essentially inhuman, but still being relatable though their facial expressions and body language. The story is carried by a single song only.
The two types of people in the film are divided by markings only. One side has very crisp markings of black and white, and the other has smooth shades of cool grey. They constantly fight for territory when they meet, but are for the most part widely dispersed. There is no gender among the characters, but they may be arbitrarily referred to as he or she.
