Good music, stylish illustration style, quirky characters, and a cool plot—what else do you need in an animated short? The guys from Cocoe do it again, a small studio based in Madrid, led by Gabriel Suchowolski (microbians) and Jean Duprez.
This sweet piece was created for OFFF, a culture festival hosted in Barcelona, New York, Lisbon and Paris. Here’s a short insight about the festival:
More than a decade ago, it was born as a post-digital culture festival; a meeting place to host contemporary creation through an in depth programme of conferences, workshops and performances by the most relevant artists [...] such as Joshua Davis, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda,Neville Brody, Kyle Cooper, The Mill, Digital Kitchen, Ben Fry & Casey Reas, Golan Levin, Chris Milk, Rob Chiu, Julien Vallée, Paula Scher, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, Dvein, Erik Natzke, Vincent Moon, Ze Frank, Alex Trochut, among others…The festival where a new generation of artists has originated and developed. All of them started attending OFFF as spectators. Today, they take up its main stage.
I could talk all day about the merits of this short, but I’ll keep it simple: not only is the plot creative and engaging, but the mix of amazing artists, from animators to musicians and the way it’s all integrated, is amazing, to say the least.
