We tell you right now: this short film will not leave you indifferent and maybe even you to move to tears. In any case, we did. We're sorry, but it's THE find of the week that we had to share with you! So, yes, the stop-motion are timeless in terms of narration and of creativity. Often, they can be more original than some "real" movies; the technique offeringpotential infinite specific to the animation.
The discovery of the day is called "Lost and Found" (literally translated Lost and Found, or Found Objects) and has been awarded in a large number of dedicated festivals. A stop-motion of professional quality but above all, full of emotions.
Created by Australians,Andrew Goldsmith andBradley Slabe, this little film of 7 minutes tells us the story of a atypical couple. These two little crochet toys, one dinosaur and an vixen, are in love as evidenced by this mobile phone on which is broadcast a slideshow of the two lovebirds. The little dinosaur then wakes up from a nap, and greet her sweetheart doing ricochets in the water of a small fountain in the distance. The rest, we let you discover it ...
Of course, what strikes all the more so as the story itself is the production of the film itself, which is amazing. Stop-motion is by no means an easy thing to do; it requires a lot of patience, de rigueur as well as the precision, in order to arrive at the desired result!
Likewise, the particular style of this little film is unique : the textures of the crooked characters, but also the mix of elements of "real" decorations give this authenticity so special to the image. For the curious, we even discovered behind the scenes of this incredible achievement, here is a preview below.
The worst part of this story is that we feel badly treated in this real rollercoaster emotions: we feel a lot of stress, suspense, tenderness, (False) joy and most of all, a lot of sadness. The cruelty of the authors is unparalleled ... Not even a small happy end ?
