Take a look at the Oscar-nominated CG-animation "Garden Party" created by 6 students from Ecole MoPa, french art school.
Garden Party is an Oscar-nominated short film animation in a thriller genre created by 6 students from France's acclaimed Ecole MoPa. The plot is represented from the perspective of exotic frogs that are having some fun in a fancy but empty mansion.
"On paper, the synopsis to Garden Party seems ridiculous, but in reality, it’s a stroke of genius as rewarding as the gorgeous animation the film is presented in. Essentially a hilarious romp featuring a group of inquisitive, accident-prone amphibians, this 7-minute short avoid hopping down the path of saccharine sweet anthropomorphism (we see all too much in animation) by blending its delicious dark subplot into proceedings. It’s a move that really lifts this short above and beyond a lot of the other films we see in the genre.
Screened in the ‘Horror: Thrilling and Chilling’ program at this year’s Encounters Festival (where it was easily the stand-out film of the session), Garden Party has been impressing audiences and juries at festival worldwide throughout 2016 & 2017. Winner of the ‘Best Graduate Short’ at GLAS Animation Festival, ‘Best Student Project’ at Siggraph and a ‘Special Jury Mention’ at Clermont-Ferrand, this is undoubtedly one of the best independent 3D animation’s we’ve encountered in some time," said the project curator, Rob Munday.
