FRENCH ANIMATED SHORT PUTS A NEW SPIN ON THE MIRROR ON THE WALL IN “REFLEXION”

This animated short speaks volumes about how one perceives themselves and the day to day battle a lot of us go through to look good. The story follows a young woman who’s getting ready for a big date with her boyfriend in her apartment, but while sitting at her vanity her reflection/her mind, has plans on destroying her self esteem. The Parisian animation team PLANKTOON is amazing at creating this whimsical world. The character of the young woman is believable in conveying the stresses the modern woman goes through. The characters are all given a slight brush stroke effect which threw me at first, but as I continued to watch, didn’t bother me as much and in fact added to the fantasy.The lighting is great and reminds me a lot of PIXAR films. This short is refreshing and I recommend checking out others this talented team has done on their home site.
