At every time, we are seeking for the best experimental short films made by the amateur Filmmakers across the world. Several times, on Filmmakers Fans, we featured the works of Experimental Filmmakers. This time, again we come up with a new short namely “Goutte d’Or” made by the Animation Filmmaker Christophe Peladan. This 10M: 55S short is all about a love-story of a Pirate with the beautiful queen. The Film has blessed with enormous amount of colorful frames and stunning visuals that can say anyone “This is a Master-piece.” UK based Oscar Nominated Filmmaker Barry Purves watched the short and commented “Simply amazing and unique and bold and lavish and wonderful!”
If you’re curious about Filmmaking and haven’t made such this short film yet, then this Animation Short Film Might Cause You to Think for a While- Why Shouldn’t I tried to make one like this? And, how can I make one like this?
Goutte d’Or is not fully an animated short; the Concept design and character design in the pre-production was done as similar as like an animated film, a strong difference is instead of animated characters, they used Puppets. The production was completely shooted on sets with a green-screen background. Finally, on post-production, the current visuals were achieved with the help of color grading technicians, Sound Designers and Animators. Goutte d’Or was produced by Happy Flyfish and Ex Fool’s Production
If you watch finished the short and you in case naively stumbled upon many visuals, here below we are showing some stunning behind the scenes of the Goutte d’Or.
