This was my graduation short film project on which I worked with my two talented friends Maël François and Jean-François Barthélémy.

We finished it back in 2007 when we graduated from Supinfocom in Valenciennes, France. Even though we hardly got any sleep in about seven months of production time (three people, almost five and a half minutes!), it was a wonderful learning experience in which we got to work in all the steps in animation production, from writing the script to the final sound mix.

Nailing the story was BY FAR the most challenging part.

Even with all its little flaws I am very happy and proud of the way it turned out, it ended up having a great run in the festival circuit as well !







Our main characters


Giacomo, the crazy opera-singing ogre.



Nada, the hungry little  peasant girl.

The soundtrack

Here’s a shout out to Mathieu Alvado, the amazing composer of the soundtrack of the film. Music was such an integral part of this project, I cannot thank him enough for his contribution. Check out his website HERE.
