Abstract

Le couple is my animated thesis film. It is 6 minutes 50seconds long. I created this work with Junran Mo.

Our short film is a humous look at a dysfunctional marriage from two conflicting points of view. One point of view is the couple's external objective reality and the other is the husband's fantasies. On the surface of the film the placid husband is dominated by his pleasure seeking wife. While he submissively watches his wife's gluttonizing, he plots revenge at every turn. Theirs is a classic cartoon relationship based on such warring duos such as Roadrunner and Wiley e Coyote, Tweety and Sylvester and Bugs bunny and the hunter Elmer Fud. However our twist on that convention is that Le Couple ends up in bed, a very adult development for a cartoon.
