A wonderful short by Aurélie Blard-Quintard

I'm staggered...can this cool little film really have been made by the quiet girl I sat in life drawing with today, Aurélie Blard-Quintard? I think so!
I could catch glimpses of her lovely life drawings, but little did I know she'd done this. Go have a look at her school end of term project:

Emily & le hamsterosaurus-Rex

A hamster-T-rex named Profiterole? What's not to love?
Click on it and watch it, you won't be sorry...I love her designs, her animation--there's wonderful, natural, expressive posing--in clay, no less...all her ideas are fun and it's paced just right. Terrific!
I had a celebrity in my car today--lucky for her I hadn't seen this yet or I'd have no doubt embarrassed her with gushing. à demain, eh?

And here's her blog with more goodies: Aurélie

Awesome find, Jenny, thanks! Those really are amazing eye and mouth shapes for clay. And just the right amount of vocals...
