The post title aptly describes the lasting impression the animated short film, Le Gouffre (The Gulf), had on me. It’s been spreading like wildfire since its release this month. Now it’s your turn to witness a work that wasn’t only visually pleasing and musically engaging, but emotionally affecting as well.
Clear your thoughts. Open your mind. Set the volume on high. Enter in full screen. Dive in.
I’ll just let you absorb everything you just experienced–saw, heard, thought, felt–and leave with some basic information.
Basic Info: What we’ve just seen is the (8-minute) short animation film Le Gouffre, as a composite product of a successful Kickstarter campaign way back in 2013 and of the original concept and passion for telling compelling stories by the three boys (Carl Beauchemin, Thomas Chrétien, and David Forest) at a Canadian-based (Montreal) studio, Lightning Boy Studio. They met in 2009 at an animation school and shared the same dream of creating great works that they can show to the world. It’s impressive that with the small team they are, an exemplary film was produced and able to garner awards from various film festivals to which the team submitted it to.
