String

You'll never look at a string puppet the same way...

String is a musical ballet between puppets and their strings. It was the opening sequence for the 2014 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. I co-directed it along with Perrine Bayssat, Yannick Boireau, Mansoureh Kamari and Isabelle Piolat.

Designs

I designed the characters in the film. We decided to use only flat color shapes and yet to give a sense of volume through animation.

Animation

I animated the monocycle character using TVPaint. It was a challenging shot... but also a lot of fun !

String Off

This is a making of highlighting my contribution to the film. It turned into a small short film of its own.
