CGI 3D Animated Short Film “Le Gouffre” by Lightning Boy Studio


**Award Winning** CGI 3D Animated Le Gouffre Short Film by Lightning Boy Studio – Carl Beauchemin, Thomas Chrétien, David Forest. Featured on An inspiring tale about friendship, sacrifice and conquering the impossible. Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie’s post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.

As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 60 festivals around the world and won nine awards, four of them for “Best Animated Short”. – CREDITS – Directed by : Carl Beauchemin, Thomas Chrétien, David Forest Music : Dan Cullen, Deryn Cullen Foley and Sound Design : Mark Donis Animation and Rigging : Carl Beauchemin Art Direction and Animation : David Forest Visual Effects and Compositing : Thomas Chrétien Voice Actors : Nicolas Charbonneaux, Charles-André Gaudreau, Élisabeth Forest Final Sound Mixing : Jean-Pierre Bissonnette Online : Birck Fulham – AWARDS – Best CG Animation Short – 3D World Magazine CG Awards 2015 Award of Excellence in Filmmaking or Screenwriting – Canada International Film Festival 2015 Jury Special Prize – Cinéma des Peuples Festival 2014 Best Animation – Harlem International Film Festival 2014 Best Animation – San Jose International Short Film Festival 2014 Best Animation – Youngcuts Film Festival 2014 Audience Favorite – SPASM Festival 2014 Audience Favorite – Animated Short – 2nd Place Palm Springs International ShortFest 2014 Best Visual Effects – Golden Orchid International Animation Festival 2014 – THE TEAM- Lightning Boy Studio was born in 2012 out of a shared passion : to tell great stories.
