Foxes, foxes, everywhere!
First up is Metro by Jacob Wyatt, a beautifully designed short fantasy film (and such wonderful colors). I love that the fox is a white shadow and that the underground is like a forest. Metro was Wyatt’s student film at the Brigham Young University Center for Animation. Via.
Second is another girl and fox film, A Fox Tale, made by four students—Thomas Bozovic, Alexandre Cazals, Julien Legay, and Chao Ma—for their graduation film at Supinfocom Arles. The action sequences with the two brothers were quite thrilling to watch, but I particularly liked the fox-like movements of the girl. L’animation est tellement incroyable! Via.
And, finally, a trailer for Feral, an upcoming short film by Daniel Sousa, that is about neither girls nor foxes, but it’s beautiful to watch , and it is connected, thematically at least, to the short films above by the idea of the line that separates the civilized from the wild, as suggested by this description: “A wild boy is found in the woods by a solitary hunter and brought back to civilization. Alienated by a strange new environment, the boy tries to adapt by using the same strategies that kept him safe in the forest.” I can’t wait to see the entire film. Via.
