Origami: An Inspirational Journey Between Generations

Origami: An Inspirational Journey Between Generations

Origami (2012) is a thoughtful, visually stunning animated short film that was created in the Japanese Noh tradition by five students, Joanne Smithies, Eric De Melo Bueno, Michael Moreno, Hugo Bailly Desmarchelier and Camille Turon, at L’Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistique (Montpellier, France). In the film, a young boy spends time alone with his grandfather, but the difference between the generations cannot be more marked. Combining artistic skill and imagination is something that cannot happen without inspiration, and eventually the boy has to embark upon a journey into his own mind’s eye to connect both to his art and to his grandfather.

Mon Ami Charly: It’s Your Turn to Get Your Brains Blown Out!

Mon Ami Charly: It’s Your Turn to Get Your Brains Blown Out!

Mon Ami Charly is a wickedly wild, award-winning animated short film by four students from the French ESMA School of Arts (Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques).  In the film, a little girl gets bored being all alone and asks her mother for permission to go meet her “imaginary friend” Charly.  The mother refuses but the little girl disobeys her, and things rapidly go downhill, completely loony-tunes crazy from that point on!
