Bigshot

Swans sing before they die— 't were no bad thing.
Should certain persons die before they sing.
(Samuel Taylor Coleridge)

Film notes

I love idiotic stories and cinemascope movies. In Greek « idiot » means « simple ». So I decided to animate idiotic short stories with tiny and cheeky characters in a one shot sequences. My animation project is a new way to laugh on a tiny, silly independent and experimental amazing international work. So it can be showed everywhere, and specially in Film Festival.
