Floating in My Mind

Often the best ideas are the simplest – and the concept behind this delightful animated short is just that.  It’s all about the lives that we lead, the people that we meet and the memories that we make.  It is also about the fact that these memories, like us, cannot live forever but they can be passed on.  It’s all presented sparely too with very little else presented other than the people involved in the life of the protagonist, the universal everyman as it were.  And, as simple as the idea and the execution are, the two combine to produce something profound.

This utterly charming animated short was created by Hélène Leroux as her graduation piece at Gobelins, one of the best schools of digital communication and interactive design on the planet.
