“Le Soleil Chante” by Delphine Burrus

If the opening titles written on what appear to be toilet paper rolls aren’t an indication, “Le Soleil Chante” (“The Sun Sings”) has a certain quirky, hand-crafted charm. It was made over eighteen months by Delphine Burrus for French musician Ignatus, who has also used animation in past videos like “Dans l’herbe” and “Les p’tits chiens”. There’s some behind-the-scene photos here, which show the tiny set, as well as all the fabric, plaster, wire and cardboard that went into its making.

Director, Script, Sets, Puppets, Camera: Delphine Burrus
Additional Artist: Violaine Lecuyer
Editing: Biljana Labovic
