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.

TAKEUCHI TAIJIN – Stop Motion with Wolf and Pig

Fight for the things you love. Run after them, do all you can to get their very heart. And in the end you and them will be one and only thing.

This amazing stop animated short film is the work of Takeuchi Taijin: photos are shot, rearranged to compose the frame, and then photographed again.

I’m using the word photomation to point out those shorts that use this same technique, like PEN Story and Photo Finish.
