Gary from Gary on Vimeo.
A beautiful animated short film directed by Clément Soulmagnon, Yann Benedi, Sébastien Eballard and Quentin Chaillet.
Supinfocom School of Animation France - 2008
Here is what the makers are saying about "Gary":
"This story is about a young boy who falls in love with a girl who is much older than him. He wants to create a other part of him to seduce her, someone older, stronger…But, this part of him began to be independent and act without control from Gary. Emile “the other side of Gary” manage to seduce the girl but he hasn’t got the same vision of love, he’s more violent and sexual than Gary. Gary is a child with dream, Emile is just his “physic part”.
We wanted to make a story, with illustrated feelings, but not in a classic narrative way. We wanted the visuals to manage to convey even more this feelings. We wanted to have a metaphoric way of storytelling. There is a whole sequence in the inside of the giant, a kind of retrospection and a way to show that Gary has to destruct or manage a part of himself in order to grow up. We wanted to show the vision of love from his childish point of view, with magic moments, imagination…The film is a metaphore of the adolescence, the first strong feelings, the first physic desire…"
