The project comes from L'Opera de Paris which on the theme of the opera and the sea asked us for short films in traditional hand animation. During the animation process a student of the conservatory composed an original music for this short film. The story : Men are busy. They pull ropes, operate mechanisms, turn capstans... They seem to be sailors in preparation. You might think they are in the backstage of the Opera building a set. In reality, they are giving life to a gigantic mechanical sea monster that emerges from the waves.
