Ex E.T.

Life on this distant planet is sedate and ordered – everything is orchestrated for the maximum harmony.  And boy is it dull. Yet one small child seems more than a little different from the rest. Curious, mischievous and playful he just doesn’t fit in with the others.  Time to get him to the doctors!

This is the degree work of four students, Benoit Bargeton, Rémy Froment, Nicolas Gracia et Yannick Lasfas who attended ESMA Montpelier in France.  It is quite something for a student film – I laughed out loud a number of times and the denouement of this great animation, although a little anticipated, is more than satisfactory (and explains a legend of our own quite nicely!).
