Stop what you're doing and head to the moon with three gifted students from Gobelins

Posted by James Cartwright,

Somewhere between Moon, The Fifth Element, Tintin: Destination Moon and 2001: A Space Odyssey sits Eclipse, a brand new piece of animation from Gobelins students (yes, students) Theo Guignard, Noé Lecombre and Hugo Moreno. It’s got all the classic sci-fi staples – eerie soundtrack, mysterious evil/benign paranormal entity, barren lunar landscape – and it’s drawn in a style evocative of the classic cartoon greats. That’s all the information we’re prepared to supply for fear of ruining the experience of this perfectly-paced, beautifully atmospheric animation.

If you think you’re too busy to stop for four minutes and immerse yourself in some sci-fi this afternoon then you better get your priorities in order. You’re wrong, this is great, you NEED to watch it.
