We don’t stop him anymore! Having already won a prestigious award at the VES Awards, a festival considered the “Oscars” for visual effects, Migrants might well compete for the real ones Oscars 2022. This animated short film, created by five students from the Pôle 3D school in Roubaix, tells the story of two polar bears forced into exile because of global warming.

The ultimate consecration for a graduation project

Incredible journey that that of this animated film. Because originally Migrants is an end-of-studies project delivered after 5 years at the Pôle 3D school, in Roubaix. Five students – Hugo Caby, Antoine Dupriez, Aubin Kubiak, Lucas Lermytte and Zoé Devise – worked tirelessly for two years on this little 8-minute gem.

We discover a mother polar bear and her cub, forced into exile because of global warming. “During their trip, they will arrive in new lands and meet brown bears with whom they will try to live together,” Hugo Caby told us when we interviewed him last April.
