The Making of Gobelins Shorts

The Making of Gobelins Shorts: Fur, Who's Afraid of Mr. Greedy?
I’ve written several times in the past about the wonderful student animation coming out of Gobelins, l’école de l’image (Goeblins School of Communications) in Paris.

It seems that each example I see is another small triumph for hand drawn animation in a world dominated by increasingly formulaic computer CGI.

Writing for On Animation, Daniel Caylor has a terrific article pointing us to both a selection of Gobelins animations that he has previously posted and a post on CATSUKA of Making-of films by various contributors to several Gobelins animations.

There are often several different Making-of films for the same animation, as they are usually the work of groups rather than individuals, and we get different perspectives on the creation of the works. There are also links to the animators’ demo reels.

Absolutely wonderful.
