Oktapodi - Gobelins Graduate Film 2007

oktapodiImagine having your student film mentioned in the same breath as the Oscar winning Rataouille?

Well that's what is happening for these 6 students from Gobelins in Paris.

Does it help get you a job?*

There's no online clip to view as yet, due in April 2008, because the film is constrained by entry into major film festivals. But the appealing character designs, colour schemes, awards and general 'feel' of the film can be captured by visiting the web site: http://oktapodi.com/

This may give the 2nd years some inspiration for their major project?
