Le Taxidermiste

I love this little short by Paulin Cointot, Dorianne Fibleuil, Antoine Robert & Maud Sertour. I love narrative concepts - life and death, ritual, preservation even down to the point where out of all the other species that have failed to beat it (and be stuffed) the fly, the insect, possibly to small to join in such practice, that is, to die and be preserved, fails. It really made me chuckle - not that im a sadist. I like the aesthetic, the illustrative textures create a lot of vibrancy in such a dead and static environment. The minimalist movement really helps the pacing of the story, it sets a calm atmosphere which really aid the expression of the ideas - counter balancing the chaotic visual style.
