“Oben” from EMCA

This remarkable graduation film from France’s Ecole des Métiers du Cinéma d’Animation (aka EMCA, the School of Film Animation) has it all: design, color and style to spare. It was created by Thierno Bah, Noé Giuliani, Pierre Ledain and David Martins da Silva. Beautiful job!

    I loved this!

    Even better, when compared with the recently-posted “Otzi,” its a textbook example of how design and tone can make almost the same premise (man in icy wilderness) radically different.

    All right, France– we get it. You’re better at animation than us. Now excuse us while we go poop out Garfield 3.

    (Noé Giuliani… Je connais ce nom… Lisaa ou Prép’Art ??)

      Hey Seb, thank you for this comment.

      I’m glad you like our film.

      I think you know Noé through Prép’Art, he was in this school before he has came to Angoulême.
