This is by far one of my favorite animated shorts that I've come across in a long time. French school EMCA graduate Lila Peuscet created this bright, surreal, and definitely mythologically-inspired short MYS. This short integrates a mixture of 2D animation and a unique pop up book style, which play well into the grand narrative.
It tells the story, similar to ones told before, of a recently deceased king and those who would fight over his crown. And in this case, the crown fight is quite literal. The epic score also lends itself to the overall feel of conquest.
