Another stunning list of student work has just been released by the french animation school Gobelins. My personal favorite, Apres la Pluie seems to be beyond the work of students. Credited to a few students by the names of Charles-André Lefebvre, Manuel Tanon-Tchi, Louis Tardivier, Sébastien Vovau, Emmanuelle Walker, this is an animation that any studio would be proud to execute. Gratifyingly different than most animation out there, this follows an aestetic closer to Tekkonkinkreet than a Pixar movie..this is no easy task. There are a couple making of videos that show the depth of research and exploration that went into this film.
Apres la Pluie making of:
Laurie Thinot of Partizan Lab, directs this energetic music video for Autokratz. This is the kind of visual storytelling I am envious of. Laurie keeps up with the frenetic beats of Autokratz while exhibiting a pure joy for her visual forms. This mix of overhead projector style illustration, info-graphics and odd story line make for an interesting video.
