Mon(s)tre

A short tale, a strange forest where time is stopped, a young girl, a magic watch, and the guardian of this petrified world.

Mon(s)tre is a metaphorical tale told by five students of Lisaa: Geoffroi Ridel, Daphné Parrot, Yann Poyac, Charles Schneck, Anthony Le Saoût. Music: Joséphine Stephenson.

The film (whose title plays on the French words for clock and monster) blends beautiful 2D and 3D animation with a clockwork storytelling. Enjoy, possibly more than once to appreciate the amazing quantity of details.
