La Chaussettologie

This short video was cre­ated by Yann Benedi and Celine Desru­maux, in Mon­treal (Novem­ber 2009), for the event Chal­lenge your world 20/20, a part­ner­ship between Chal­lenge Your World and Motiono­g­ra­pher. 20 video artists cre­ate 20 wild, whim­si­cal, and uncon­ven­tional machines that solve envi­ron­men­tal issues. If we’re going to trans­form the world we have to push our­selves to think differently.

This fan­tas­ti­cally quirky and charis­matic ani­ma­tion took three weeks to pro­duce with a mix of 3d and 2d. Jean-Francois Ler­oux was in charge of the sound design.

We are telling the story of a Blue Planet, the last meet­ing of the inhab­i­tants to try to save the planet. Unfor­tu­nately they aren’t focused on the real prob­lem, which will doomed them. But it’s not too late for us…
