Bastien Dubois‘ latest shortfilm finally aired on French/German TV channel “Arte”.
With its unique animated visuals inspired by Argentinian illustrator Jorge Gonzalez and uneasy theme, I feel really privileged to have been part of this outstanding short film beautifully mixing 2d and 3d techniques.
The short film successfully relates Bastien’s unsuccessful multiple attempts at tackling the atrocities committed by French army during Algerian War of Independence. Not an easy theme to be treated in animation that’s for sure!
French and German viewers can hit the following link to access the short film in full.
For other territories, the short film is currently running in animation festivals so here is a trailer below in the meantime. The trailer’s music is not reflective of the final soundtrack ;-)
Come back to this post next week as I will add some behind the scenes if I get the all clear from the production.
Great CTN Pixar roundtable during showing diversity at Pixar. Hosted by none other that Luis Gonzalez, the talks centers around how Pixar artists Paul Abadilla, MontaQue Ruffin and Mike Yates got into animation, and they kindly share their journey up to joining Pixar.
Have you seen “The box assassin”, this great new shortfilm coming out of Ringling?
Amazing work from a one man team.
