For those who cherish music
more than history
here is a little reminder.

 - MPEG-4 clip
A magnificent example of great animation made out of near to nothing. Only matches and match boxes.

Made in April 2009 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a bar in Montreal, Canada, named Laika, after the first animal launched in orbit.

Laika (the short film, that is) is the work of Guillaume Blanchet at Cheap Production.

The music is The (House Guest’s) Guitar by Frivolous AKA Daniel Gardner. Sound mix: Sonart.

NOTE: The longer version has a short segment at its beginning introducing the bar.

Magnifico esempio di ottima animazione realizzata con poco e niente. Solo fiammiferi e le loro scatole.

Realizzato nell’aprile 2009 per il decimo anniversario di un bar di Montreal chiamato Laika, come il primo animale lanciato in orbita.

Laika (il film corto) è opera di Guillaume Blanchet presso Cheap Production.

Il brano è The (House Guest’s) Guitar di Frivolous alias Daniel Gardner. Mix audio: Sonart.

NOTA: La versione più lunga ha un breve segmento introduttivo girato nel bar.
