Yannick Puig: “I Lived on the Moon”

Yannick Puig directed, designed, and animated “I Lived on the Moon” for Kwoon. It’s an ethereal short film brimming with atmosphere and a childlike sense of wonderment.

There’s some nice making-of info on Yannick’s site, including links to alternate downloads of the video.

Thanks to reader Eoin Duffy (and Yannick Puig himself) for bringing this project to our attention.

Great work. Love it. The shot at the end where the canon ball on the chain just misses the kid on the Manta Ray is breath-taking.


Its always interesting to me how some pieces get tons of comments and others get few. I think this is a wonderful piece of work. As I watched it I found it vaguely familiar, and soon realized that this is the same guy who did “Krapooyo” which is an amazing piece of work in itself. He’s got a very original style.
Nice work!



Great short! I agree, the cannonball part is intense. And thank you for making a “making of”.


Hey, the Krapooyo guy! Wonderful piece, once again. I personally think he’s a great story teller and I’m glad to see some new work. Very inspiring.

Does he also do illustration? I could see him being a great children’s book artist. :)
