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.
Not to be forgotten though are the other films, which all display the amazingly high standard that Gobelins has for it’s students. Another great animation worth seeing is California Love.
