“Windmills”

Take a look at WindMills, a beautifully stylish graduation film from France’s Georges Méliès school, directed by Guillaume Bergère, Guillaume Coudert, Maria Glinyanova, Bruno Guerra and Charlotte Jammet.

Synopsis: It is a dead, lightless world, where a little girl, despite her father’s renunciation and despair facing the death of his wife, maintains their dream of building a machine powered by magic winds to fly and reach the sun.

    Wow that was a wonderful short. It really blends the lines between hand drawn and 3-d animation, in fact for the first few seconds I thought it was hand drawn. I don’t know why more studios don’t use cel-shaded graphics, this short uses them beautifully. Great stuff.

    Any chance you could make the embeded videos not auto-playing? Sometimes I open things in new tabs and it can get weird when you have no clue which one is making noise.

  • Amazing stuff! Can somebody give these guys money to make a feature film!
