Hmm, the download stopped in the middle probably due to heavy traffic, but wow, what an eye candy. I love those french and their crazy ideas! It must be a cultural thing.

I'm usually not too fond of abstract art in general, but that can be an exception.

Yowza!

The whole time I watched it I was thinking to myself, How did they DO THAT?!
Crazy conceptual stuff and superb execution.
Not very fulfilling (for me) as far as story or anything but, like Dennik said, great eye candy.
Their minds are definitely on a different frequency.
Really amzing stuff.
Thanks for sharing that.

Thats a shame cause it gets really crazy towards the end

Yar, my ADD got the better of me and I wasn't able to finish it. Seemed pretty cool, but didn't find much of a point to it, although maybe you have to actually watch the whole thing and do somethinkin on it or something. That, and I was like, booger, no deformations!

It finally finished downloading. Trully crazy untill the end. My mind would never think this way for sure.

I noticed some slight similarities to the style with an older short called Theros (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=240957&highlight=abstract)
Anyone got the same impression?

I agree with Slurry... a little disappointing from the story side of it, but phenomenal animation and effects. The concept is very unique and visually appealing. Excellent work.

to anyone who is going to bother to download this at all, it is definitely worth sticking through to the very end.

This commercial is from 2002 but it is still one of my all time favorites. TV spot for Gaz De France done by La Maison production house. Have a peek: http://www.alamaison.fr/francais/rubriques/galerie/pub/2002/gdf/film/gdf_real.mpg

Thanks for posting...that was truly mindblowing! I haven't been as inspired by a cg short as much as this since Ryan. This has given me a lot of ideas for the short I am working on :twisted:

Damn, why lock up content website with FLASH?!!
I can't navigate thorough the website (uninteroperable Flash 8 is needed)
And BeamTV same business, it doesn't work on free operating system.

Please, for web content, respect users by the respect of w3c standards.

Give us a direct link to this video, please.

Wow, this is amazing. A bit long but absolutley technically stunning work. I have no idea how much of that was achieved. I really would love to know more abou this (artists, software, techniques, time frame, etc.). Yeah, its a shame the website kinda chokes. Beam TV won't allow you direct access to the quicktime file either so you can't provide an alternate link I don't think. If anyone can provide a direct link....please post it. I would love to save this.

and in case this matters i'm opening it in a new tab. and i can't find it in the cache..its bugging me as i really would like to keep this to show my friends later on..

There are a few times when watching something you think "How did they do that...?"

I think I counted about 4'000 times with this one.

Marvellous stuff.

What is Supinfocom anyway? I always see there shorts at Siggraph, etc. and most of them are pretty well executed and quite long. They must have a massive staff or something. The website is all in French. Anyone care to share some info on this studio and what exactly do they do?

It's not a studio - it's a University.

Ahhh, I see now. Nice! Anyone here go to that university? Would like to know more about.

Darktwin

very awesome stuff, I really liked the music and how it was executed with the animation of the enviornment and character. I also enjoyed the grays, blacks and blues as a palette throughout the entire short, it set a really nice mood. Thats really awesome for a school to do something experimental like that.

02-21-2006, 08:56 PM
Yeah supinfocom is awesome, they make the most amazing stuff.

as for the video, still no luck saving it here, has anyone else managed to save it? or..and this is asking a lot i realise, could someone who has saved it maybe upload it temporarily on rapidshare.de or filefront.com maybe? :)

I was able to save it using Flashget. I right clicked and used the Flashgot all command. It saved a file that was around 70 mb that I renamed to a quicktime. Sorry, I don't have the web space to upload it, but let me know if you can't figure it out, I could maybe upload it to rapidshare tomorrow (if the creators didn't object, maybe they have a reason for not making a download link). :shrug:

Very well thoughtout and thought-provoking aswell. The planning stages must have been complex and the boarding must have been interesting. This is truly unique and an amazing visual and audio short.

Excellent! :eek:

Yes i could, but i can't browse the website, i don't have stupid flash 8 :/
If you would print here the 90° website content, i'll translate it for you.

'lo Folks.

I'm a final year student at Supinfocom, which isn't exactly a university but indeed a CG animation school. I'd be delighted to answer questions if you have any. :)

I'm just curious to know some general info about the school. How many students? How many schools? What software is used? Is it a 3d animation school or an arts school that also teaches fine arts as well? Any english website?

Amazing and outstanding! That's brilliance!

Halfway through somehow my largest thought was that if someone would make a game out of this, making such a stylish and surreal world evolve around you whilst you just run for your head, it'd buy it and make sure everybody I ever have met would buy it :) I'd really love to see such expressionistic things leave the 'safe realm of animation' and cross the anistral planes to games.

So true... If only the industry didn't play it that safe...

Yup, Cubiman, Valenciennes. :)

To stay short, Supinfocom is 2 CG schools, one in Valenciennes(North of France), the other in Arles(South...). It's a 4 (soon 5) year course. The first two years serve as an art prep (color, art history, Photoshop, After Effects, illustration, Gestalt Theory etc...) and the final two years (soon 3) is where the "real" fun starts.

3rd year, you learn the 3d software (either Max or Maya in Valenciennes, just Max in Arles), and work on preproduction of a short film.

4th year, you do a 3d previz and start production in january, deadline being at the end of june. Voilà!

We're about 150 students in total (at least for Valenciennes). We work in teams of three. 16 short films from Valenciennes, 8 from Arles. We complete the cursus by presenting our shorts to a jury of professionals (a bit of everything. Last year was The Mill, Framestore, Buf, MacGuff Ligne, Dreamworks, Pixar etc... etc...). That's it basically.


What I know of 90°. Not much actually. It was done with Max. The sound design was done with Acid by one the guys. And, as far as I know, the two others work for The Mill now.
