Animation director and graphic artist Nicolas Ménard is known for his dynamic compositions and often darkly humoured narratives, brought together in vibrant colours. His animation Wednesday With Goddard, made with his wife Manshen Lo, is about one man’s search for God and brings all these elements together in brilliant harmony. At Nicer Tuesdays he told us incredible details about the film and its making.
“It all started from the core of the structure. I wanted to make a film that starts like a children’s book in a series of beats, but that ends dramatically and badly, like a big anticlimax that would almost leave the audience disappointed, a little bit like false expectations, or the anticlimax that comes with completing an animated short film” he jokes. Watch the full film above, and hear more from Nicolas.
