Amazing shorts: Windmills

Check out this awesome short. A beautiful blend of CG and traditional animation. Graduation film from France’s Georges Méliès school, directed by Guillaume Bergère, Guillaume Coudert, Maria Glinyanova, Bruno Guerra and Charlotte Jammet.

It is a dead, lightless world, where a little girl, despite her father’s renunciation and despair facing the death of his wife, maintains their dream of building a machine powered by magic winds to fly and reach the sun.

So for those who didn’t understand the French:
Girl: “There’s enough wind for us to go!”
Dad: “I’m staying… with your mother. Leave without us. Go.”
Girl: “I don’t want to go without you!”
