La Main des Maîtres

Regarde ces murs,
Que vois-tu au-delà?
Les rouages de l’Etat.
Oui, c’est nous qui faisons vivre ces bourgeois.
Le soleil brille de notre côté,
Il a bien trop à faire dans les riches quartiers…

In a sort of steampunk version of the French revolution, Chari and Ico, two young members of the working class, try to give meaning to their existences.

La Main des Maîtres (The hand of the masters) “takes its graphical direction from the early 20th century’s Art Nouveau and Victorian styles. Beneath the graphics is the society of the working class during the industrial revolution as it relates to class struggle. The major artistic influence on the overall animation style is the painter Alfons Mucha. From this inspiration, everything went to Steampunk.” (Source: Siggraph)

The short film is the work of three students of the Georges Méliès School (formerly EESA): Vivien Chauvet, Adrien Toupet and Clément Delatre.

In una sorta di versione steampunk della rivoluzione francese, Chari ed Ico, due giovani esponenti della classe lavoratrice provano a dare senso alle loro esistenze.

La Main des Maîtres (La mano dei padroni) “prende spunto, graficamente, dall’Art Nouveau e dallo stile vittoriano dei primi del 20° secolo. Dietro la grafica vi è la società della classe lavoratrice che, durante la rivoluzione industriale, affronta la lotta di classe. L’ispirazione maggiore sullo stile complessivo dell’animazione è stato il pittore Alfons Mucha. Da questo punto, il tutto è virato verso lo Steampunk.” (Fonte: Siggraph)

Il cortometraggio è opera di tre studenti della scuola Georges Méliès (ex EESA): Vivien Chauvet, Adrien Toupet e Clément Delatre.
