The award-winning short film ‘Wednesday with Goddard’ directed by Nicolas Menard has premiered on Vimeo at: https://vimeo.com/208812809.
‘Wednesday with Goddard’ won the animated shorts category at the 2017 SXSW Film awards held in Austin and is also 1 of only 87 films on the official selection list for the 2017 Annecy Festival (selected out of over 2,800 films received from 95 countries).
The film tells the story of Eugene, who goes on a personal quest for spiritual enlightenment that leads to romance and despair. It juxtaposes intricate pencil drawings by Manshen Lo, with simple, geometric characters.
The most technical moment in the film is when God’s flower unfolds. It took 21 fully rendered pencil drawings to create the animation.
