Invasions - Short Animated Film

An extremely original and poetic take on a rather tired old subject (to be frank) Invasions, by Paris-based animator Clement Mourin is a 3D animated short that explains - once and for all - why aliens come to earth.  You may be surprised and this delightful six minute short is well worth watching if you have ever wondered what the true nature of alien visitations really is. 

There is no dialogue in this film, so don't worry if you can't speak French - there is a universal language at work here.  Altogether, this is a delightful short film.  My best advice would be go make a coffee, get the kids (if you have any) and sit around the computer to take this in.  If you enjoy it half as much as I did then you will thoroughly enjoy it.

Note, though, if you are expecting a full on science-fiction epic then you  have probably come to the wrong place.  This film is beautifully understated (as you might expect from a French animator) and you may want to watch it a second time after you have realised what the alien's mission truly is!  We love this at Webphemera Towers, so enjoy!

I like this a lot. Good animation and glad to see it isn't some epic alien/human struggle.
