Short Film Profile

Les anges déchets

A can falls, pushed by the wind. Movement creates life. The first spark of life: A guitar, struck by the can, awakes and becomes aware of the surrounding world. A succession of chapters illustrates life growing in this dump, an environment which is created with each object finding its place within this recomposed nature. The death of the guitar seals the membership of the objects to a social group. It integrates the ceremony of funerals in the evolution of this society. At this time, objects are ready to take part in the construction of a new world.

Film notes

The creative process is akin to the movie theme. Recycling, using all the resources available. The elements that were used to create the background models come from useless objects found in alleys, eco centers and garbage dumps. All the 3D’s elements are created with free Open Source software such as Blender, Gimp, etc. same as for the digital image and the editing that are created in a format light enough to be compatible with a standard computer. The production material is reduced to the minimum.
