CHRONIQUES DE L'EAU SALÉE - Graduation short film 2021
Under the last summer days sun’s, a young man gets ready to leave his family home.
What are your visual inspirations ?
We were mostly inspired by Japanese artists, like Matsumoto Taiyó, Taniucho Rokuró et Yuasa Masaaki. Their sensibility, the tenderness, their sense of composition, the stories their art expresses touched and resonated with us. Ishii Katsuhito's The Taste of Tea played a big part as well, in it's tone and it's themes.
How did you come up with the story and the visuals ?
We came together as a group because we shared the same references and sensibilities.
We wrote the whole story together, the five of us : we had a few leading ideas that we all agreed on (talking about leaving, about family, and having a bitter sweet tone) and started to build of each each other's ideas from there. The same happened with the concepts, artistic direction and storyboarding : we all drew concepts, put forward visuals, feeding of each other, deciding everything together to create a coherent visual universe that is different than the personal works of each member of the group but inherently unique to this film. In the end, we all had a say and a hand in all aspects of the film/
Did each person take care of one sequence ?
No, not really. Sometimes during storyboarding, one member would take the lead a little bit, but during animation, everyone worked on each sequence, to keep some coherence in the animation style.

I like everything from writing, storyboard, visual-development, background design and 2D animation. I would like to create movies and comicbooks.
