Nicolas Deveaux: 5Meters80


Just because this brought a huge smile to my face and a great sense of imagination and wonder I wanted to share this exquisite animated film by Nicolas Deveaux. High diving giraffes. Brilliant. Oh, and the name?? Well, of course, it refers to the height of the stars of the film.

This extremely talented writer and director of animation films (3D and relief) finds his inspiration within his two passions, image and the animal world. In 2003, fresh out of school he directed 7Tonnes3, (link below) a short-film of a champion elephant trampoline jumper. Its critical acclaim has subsequently led to a very strong resume. He is with Paris-based Cube Creative, and this film is in celebration of their 10th anniversary. I’ve added some links of previous work below so you can grasp the scope of this film makers talent and imagination. Bravo Nicolas!!
