    Time is a monster that is constantly chasing us …

    This short introduces a little girl playing with a clock. The clock happens to break, revealing a brutal mechanical monster and disrupting the time of her world.

    Mon(s)tre was our second short, one of two student shorts realized during a four-month period in 2008 at L’institut supérieur des arts appliqués. It was a good way to test our capacities on a mini-production pipeline. Each one of us had the opportunity to do our best work in a complementary way and in a very short amount of time.
