COLOSSE - A WOOD TALE by Yves Geleyn

ABOUT

Meet Colosse, Yves Geleyn's sweet 30-foot child. Now, Colosse isn't your ordinary child; he just so happens to be a very tall, wood robot puppet who doesn’t know his own strength, much less what his strings are up to.

 

In this short film, Yves explores his childhood obsession with puppets and all things robotic.

 

Thoughts from the director:

“I’m a huge fan of Jim Henson’s work. I have always wanted to work with puppets but never had the chance to do so before. I’m also a huge fan of robots; they were in all my childhood movies, cartoons, and comics. The robot from Paul Grimault’s The King And The Mockingbird; Brad Bird’s Iron Giant; and Goldorak, a Japanese cartoon, were inspirations for me. It was these two passions of puppetry and robots that drove me to create this short film, with a bird in it of course (can’t lose my bad habits).”
