Stéphane Halleux is one of my favorite artists. We’ve covered his whimsical, characterful, other-worldly sculptures here before. I’ve been excited to be following his recent adventures in turning his amazing characters into a movie.

Here’s the latest video test he sent me. Even with this short piece, you can already see how lyrical, funny, charming, and just plain cool the final product is likely to be. Stéphane and company are looking for funding. Sponsorship details can be found on the film’s website.
