L’âme Seule (The lonely soul) is a touching animation created by three talented students from EESA (Ecole Européenne Supérieure d’Animation): Cédric Berthier, Jean-Sébastien Leroux et Maximilien Royo. The short-film (4min) tells the story of a lonely character and the discover of what is missing in its life. The making-of shows part of the process of this a stop-motion animation and the creation of the characters with plasticine. The music was composed by SoH-So, who also made the site.
The same trio made a second animation: Petits Pois / Carottes (Pea/Carrots), which has a blog making of d’un film de fin d’études, with notes about the process of creation. The short 3D film is about a young larva, impatient to become a fly, and a group of bully flies (don’t ask me, watch it) fighting for a single pea in a dirty kitchen. Excluding my natural disgust for flies, it’s brilliant animation. (via Koreus)
