à la fin… small moments of poetry, absurdity & surrealism

Nicolas Lichtle, a senior motion designer, I work in the fields of museography, documentary and animated typography at studio Mada Mada, started this film a year ago.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...

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.


It's a very personal work of inspiration where Nicolas used green screen stock footages that he diverted according to his ideas, desires and moods of the moment.

There is then a real transformation work in post production with the addition of various elements in 3D, drawing frame by frame and photographic cutting. So it's a mix of techniques that comes close to a collage work
