A la Dérive - Short Animation
A la Dérive is my second thesis film from film school at ESCAC, Barcelona, Spain.
The synopsis : Paul dreams to go sailing with his father one day. But his father tumbles into a depression and literally dissolves right before his eyes. The family threatens to collapse and for Paul there is a long road to go.
On this project, my approach was very intuitive, I had never worked on animation before and I was thrilled to start this new adventure. I started thinking of light in a more illustrative way, taking away all the physicality part. I wanted to focus only on the emotions. After working closely with the director Cyprien Clement-Delmas on references and looks, I started to work on the story board using it almost as a canvas.
It took multiple years for Cyprien Clement-Delmas to finish this wonderful film, and I could not be more amazed by the result.
