Ever get tired of having the same view outside your door every morning?
One Day (YouTube link) is a beautifully realized animated short (4 minutes) about a young man whose house apparently moves to a new location every night, leaving him with a different view outside his door every morning.
It suggests that this is eventually less charming than it may seem.
The film was created by Joel Corcia, Bung, Nguyen, Thomas Reteuna, Laurent Rossi and Bernard Som, with input from others, and released through Gobelins — the amazing art and animation school in Paris that either finds remarkable students, or trains their students remarkable well, or both.
This version of the film is dubbed in English, with French subtitles. It may help to know that “rien á faire” translates as “nothing to do”.
See my previous post on the Gobelins students’ animations for the Annecy Animation Festivals.

Cool! I’m glad that you provided a translation for rein a faire. Nice ending – they can be hard to do. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice story. And – another time- very Disney/Pixar… Why are students so conformist now ?
Yes, it does seem a bit more “Hollywood” than some of the animation coming out of Gobelins, though still beautifully done.
I think animation students are feeling pressured to do work that will get them hired by a studio where they can make a living.
Sure it has a certain Disney ‘feel’ but I think Disney produces high quality esthetics with mass appeal. Those are ready-to-hire illustrators
