Le Gouffre - an award winning animated short

Found this today and it really impressed me. The attention to detail and overal quality of artwork and storytelling is the best i've seen in a while. From what I can see its mostly done with Softimage and a whole lot of skill+talent+patience. Well done!

"Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie's post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film." - Lightning Boy Studio

As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 40 festivals around the world and won six awards, three of them for "Best Animated Short".

Heres a fascinating look behind the scenes..
