Gobelins: Blind Spot

The students of Gobelins never fail to impress. “Blind Spot” isn’t new, but it has been nominated as a Best Student Piece for SIGGRAPH 2008. And with good reason. The technical and artistic strengths of the film’s creators all dovetail brilliantly, making for a tightly packed narrative that’s full of detail and comedic irony.

“Blind Spot” was created by Johanna Bessiere, Nicolas Chauvelot, Olivier Clert, Cecile Dubois Herry, Yvon Jardel and Simon Rouby.

    sick, sick ,sick .. oh my god, im going to die that was so good

  • saw this one at the fmx in stuttgart/germany and thought it was one of gobelins weaker productions.
    don´t get me wrong: the students accomplished so much on a technical level and deserve the praise. i just think the plot was very obvious and i just can´t stand shorts “with a twist” at the end anymore.

    I saw this on screen at the Mike Judge Animation Show in chicago last weekend. I think there were three other Gobelins shorts as well that played. It looked awesome on the big screen!

    the story is cool, good narrative in my opinion. nice balance between meaningful thought and light-hearted humour

    1 Really well done, 2 the story you cant deny even if you dont like the “twist at the end” that is really well done.

  • Poor old lady… A victim of sad circumstance… However one cannot deny that the twist at the end was greatly done and unexpected… Bravo!

    I thought it was very well done and very funny. I showed it to my wife and she got really upset and didn’t think it was funny at all. Great job in my opinion.
