Created by Mathilde Parquet as her graduation film at the EMCA, Louis employs some of the same techniques present in the stop motion/animated hybrid called Tombed, which we covered recently. An otherwise pleasant, sunny day quickly turns into a very surreal, terrifying experience for two girls, who decide to see what's down the literal rabbit hole. Some very interesting stylistic choices in this short, including the first instance of ballpoint pen animation we've probably ever featured, as well as an increasingly chaotic line style as things get out of hand.
Laura and Matilda, two long-time friends walk by the sea on their way and discover a strange den. Their curiosity will lead them into a dreamlike adventure. But this particular dream walks a fine line between pleasant and nightmarish.
