Following a long night of partying on a yacht, a diverse group of party-goers find themselves drawn to a mysterious island in this dialogueless short created at the Parisian Supinfocom animation academy. When a sudden mysterious event deprives them of their only means out of there, their only choice is to head further inland to figure out why nobody ever seems to leave this strange, surreal island intact.
The short is notable for it's seamless mix of 2D and 3D, using a painterly aesthetic for it's 3D as well as digitally painted backgrounds. The short also succeeds at being strangely unsettling despite it being an extremely lush, sunny day thanks to the lack of dialogue and effective sound treatment, including one instance of the Wilhelm scream. Created by Rémy Busson, Francis Canitrot, Aurélien Duhayon, Sébastien Iglesias, Maxence Martin and Paùl Monge.
