French Animators Make Me Happy

Salesman Pete Trailer from Salesman Pete on Vimeo.

I really like it when CG gets exaggerated, stylized, and overall cartoony. There seem to be a lot of French animation students doing that, particularly ones from the Gobelins school (but not these guys, apparently they dropped out in order to do this film "their own way." Why can't this fun trend make it to the States?

Amid Amidi (the bad cop to Jerry Beck's good cop over at Cartoon Brew) puts it best: saying that this trailer "puts to shame the bland indistinguishable visual styling that dominates all mainstream computer animated features nowadays."
