"Garden Party" - best CG shorts from Siggraph 2017

"Top French animation school MOPA – formerly Supinfocom Arles – took home the prize for Best Student Project for this beautifully rendered short about a frog and a toad at play in the gardens of a luxury villa.

Again, it’s currently doing the rounds of the festival circuit, so the full animation isn’t online yet, but you can see a one-minute clip above.

Compositor Lucas Navarro’s current demo reel (link below) gives a glimpse into how the short’s elegant balance between photorealism and stylisation was achieved, using a combination of Maya, Arnold and Nuke."
