Few days ago, Sebastien Laban and Virginie Goyons finally released their long awaited short film named “Meet Meline”.
They started working on it during their free time the nights and the weekend back in 2007 and many people followed the production news little by little in this forum.
When i first saw the film, it reminded me of things like Final Fantasy animations, or some Ghibli films.
For an independent short film with no budget i think the result is just bluffing! It is as good as big production animations in my oppinion! The way the little girl and the camera move, the lights and backgrounds are just awesome!
Here’s the trailer:
You can either watch the film now or after watching the making of, but i really think you should watch both things, because the making of is really well done. It really explains all the process very well. Everything is in french with english subtitles.
