Sylvain (or so I shall call you from today, because every time I mention you to my mates, I call you "Sykosan"), this is quite a film!  The imagery is stunning.  Great use of animated shadows too!  I love your 2D/3D looking animations, but to imagine that you did this back in 2002??  That's something!  Much respect for you and your craft.

Oh gosh yes, that was a while ago. And to be honest I haven't made another short film since then. It's killing me I gotta say. I'm starting to think that I need to get a job outside of animation to start doing my own thing again. Time will tell. Glad you dig man.

Trust me, I know the sentiments.  As is why I said, "Now or never," to myself a month ago, and am finally making my film!  When you get back to it, you got the whole world on your side man.  Your skills don't lie!

Donc tu as fait l'école de la Poudrière pour atteindre ce niveau ? C'est une école d'animation ? (Je vien sotut juste d'entrer à l'école Bellecour, et j'aimerais me spécialiser dans l'animation !)
Reply
:iconsykosan:
sykosan Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Oui. Mais La Poudrière est moins un école pour faire de l'anim qu'une école pour être réalisateur d'animation. L'accent est mis sur l'écriture, le storyboard et la gestion du projet plus que sur l'anim. La meilleure école d'anim 2D pure en France reste encore les Gobelins à Paris.

Ah je vois, mais malgré ça tu as un niveau très impressionnant, on dirait de la 3D avec la fluidité de la 2D ! Tu as réussit à trouver un métier ?
Haha oui bien sûr, mais je n'aurais jamais un niveau suffisant (ni l'argent) pour entrer aux Gobelins !

@03:11I have a short attention span...but I'm glad I stuck with the film. The alien surprised me - or should I say the 'nonhuman' surprised me, humans could've been the aliens there... >,< Anyway, it was a good twist and I liked the beauty of the film. I agree with ZeroMidnight - definitely breathtaking!
