This project is an animated “Happy new year” message.
Each year, as a freelance designer, I send my personal wishes to my friends, family and clients. Since 2013, I have started to work on motion designs with my companion, under the name of Achille & Millefeuille. I am in charge of the image, he deals with the sound design. Our videos are experimental, free and fun (to make and to watch). Our characters are always slighlty ackward, freaky and unadapted.
In 2015, our private relation went through a serious crisis that led to a separation.
Nevertheless, Achille & Millefeuille are still standing and enjoying their artistic collaboration. Art stronger then heartbreak!
Why do you deserve to win?
This piece of work makes me proud for 3 major reasons :
– first of all, I had a great time working on it, it brought me lots of fun and pleasure.
– Then, it is a “family affair”. My ex-companion (sound design), our daughter (voice) and me (image) are united in this project despite of our recent break-up.
– And mainly, this video makes people happy. I received so many enthusiastic comments, that I believe that our “Best wishes for 2018” have reached their target !
