Jungle Jail

When you are the new prisoner in an enormous, scary prison you know that you have to keep your head down and get on with things. So, when one scrawny little guy becomes the place’s newest inmate that is his intention. The prison bully, though, is soon after him. Yet things do not always go to plan and when he sees an opportunity to become the bully himself he grabs it – literally.

This entertaining short is made by a group of students at ESMA Montpelier which seems to churn out world class animators with astonishing regularity. This particular animation, which examines the nature of the bully in all of us, is by Mathieu Arnoux, Hugo Cierzniak, Aymeric Palermo and Bruce Nguyen.
