In the age of digital animation, CGI and other cool cinema based technologies it so seems that more people are getting pretty creative with using all of these new techniques to their advantage. There are those of who use blogs, Twitter and other conventional means to show the world what’s bound within our hearts and imagination; there are others however that use the above mentioned camera tricks combined with talent and imagination to present their ideas with much more finesse and flare.
Talented former students at students at Supinfocom Arles in France (Thomas Bozovic, Alexandre Cazals, Julien Legay and Chao Ma) crafted this seven minute film entitled “A Fox Tale”. This story features two guys (could be friends, could be brothers, it’s hard to tell) on a mission to catch a fox and on their quest they encounter much more than they bargained for. After their elusive prey transforms into the unexpected the two comrades out to capture the fox are then brought to fighting terms which is actually pretty cool to watch. It’s not everyday a man is propelled into a lightning filled sky and descends back to earth with lightning in hand; literally. After duking it out for a bit the two battle buddies seem to call it quits in a way and once again feast their eyes on the ‘fox’ as the film gracefully ends. According to sources this animated short took the four guys responsible one year to complete but with all of the amazing detail that can be seen in the pictures and video below, it’s quite obvious that their prolonged hard work did not go to waste. A story of beauty, deception, and proving that “bros before hoes” does not always hold true make “A Fox Tale” a must watch. I love it! A unique spin on a simple story and the graphics and details in this film are phenomenal and really help bring the story to life. With that being said, here’s “A Fox Tale” for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
