Des résidus analytiques.
Des résidus analytiques. Tout commence par une erreur. Un homme attend toute une vie qu’un conseiller réponde à son appel. Un autre fait l’équivalent du tour du monde dans son salon. Un groupe de touristes suit le gouide.
Mon dessin animé de fin d’étude à l’ EMCA, 2016.
Analytical residues. It all begins whith a mistake. A man spends his whole life expecting a hotline advisor to answer his call. Another makes the earth’s circumference in his living room. A group of tourists follows the gouide.
This my graduation film from EMCA, Angoulême.
