École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs student Thomas Pons’ animations may shift in style from piece to piece but all seem to share a common surreal nature woven into their very fabric. We Don’t Play Football sees him team up with Julie Chheng to create a soothing watercolour filled walk-cycle which represents the dynamic and harmonic shifts in the Apes Did Ensemble track it accompanies. While Cellule, sees rotoscoped lovers denied the privacy of a train carriage by static emitting officials. Gorgeous stuff.
About the Author / MarBelle
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the multi-decade incarnation of this disorder and remains so much cheaper than film school.
