Created by a team of students over at the Les Gobelins academy in Paris, The Retake is a veritable painting in motion created as a bumper/ident for the Annecy 2013 animation festival. Despite being just under a minute, the short centers around a frustrated court artist and a King who can't see the beauty in front of him.
The entire video is a visualization of the freedom of experssion and personal pride, an issue typically brought up by artists dealing with clients aloof about the artistic process. The short was created by Maxime Delalande, Nadya Mira, Semiramis Mamata, Laurent Moing and Rayane Raji. Check out the making of the short after the break, going over the entire creation process, including some really cool shot breakdowns.
