“à la fin…”, a short animated film directed by Nicolas Lichtle.

Nicolas Lichtle says: “It’s not a commissioned work, it’s neither fiction nor animation, the graphic style is rather singular. It’s a moment of introspection, very intimate, staged through a succession of small moments imbued with poetry, absurdity, and sometimes surrealism…”

Nicolas Lichtle is a senior motion designer currently working in the fields of museography, documentary, and animated typography at studio Mada Mada. It’s a very personal work of inspiration where he used green screen stock footage that he diverted according to his ideas, desires, and moods of the moment. A big transformation comes through post-production with the addition of various elements in 3D, drawing frame by frame plus photographic cutting. The result is a mix of different techniques that comes close to a collage.

“I worked alone on the whole project, I also wanted to do all the sound design work on the film by myself. The music track used in the background is a creation of the artist Clark from the album Kiki Variations,” said Nicolas Lichtle.

Below you can find a few stills from the video. For those who want to know more about Nicolas Lichtle and his creative work, just visit his website or follow him on Behance. In addition, we recommend you to visit the website of Mada Mada or follow the studio on Twitter.
