“Sun” by Celine and Yann

A cute short made by Celine & Yann, a directing duo repped by Passion Pictures and comprised of Yann Benedi and Celine Desrumaux. A great example of how to tell a story in one minute. Student filmmakers could learn a lot from this, including the importance of having strong personality animation even when using an illustrative design style.

Sun is the second short in Celine & Yann’s self-produced “Giants” series; the first was Army. Sound design provided by David Kamp.

    I wonder how he did the peanuts-teacheresque sun voice. Low brass?

    How cute! Great play with light too, something not too common in short animation.

  • Mac
