A few days ago while checking out FEED, I caught a post about Butterfly, a beautiful vfx short created by Quad and Wizz in Paris. It reminded me of something I’d seen a couple days before, a music video for Emilie Simon’s Fleur de Saison from another French studio called Nobrain.
If Butterfly and Fleur de Saison battled it out, say, in a jello wrestling match (with optional chocolate syrup), I’d have to say Butterfly would winÃ¢â‚¬â€?but not without getting really messy first. Butterfly’s compositing is a bit tighter and it doesn’t employ the ubiquitous 3D stroke elements that Fleur de Saison uses. (In Nobrain’s defense, their use of 3D stroke does make sense in the context of the video.)
