Against Time (Contre Temps)

A man, survivor of some future apocalyptic event which has seen the Earth’s oceans rise and tidally envelop his city, lives to collect timepieces from the wreckage when the waters recede.  His life is conducted very much against time but when he discovers that he is not, after all, alone – his priorities must change.

The great thing here is that you can fill in the back-story - who the man is, what has happened to his city and why he collects the timepieces. And who the other survivor might be...

This is a wonderful animated short, created by six students at Supinfocom Arles.  They are Jérémi Boutelet, Thibaud Clergue, Tristan Ménardm, Camille Perrin, Gaël Megherbi and Lucas Veber.  Again, students from Supinfocom deliver something which can easily stand shoulder to shoulder with animated shorts created by seasoned professionals.  Great work, people!
