A Peek Inside the Worlds of Gaelle Denis

Director Gaelle Denis recently created this new spot for Dupont, "Open Science" with the help of VFX firm MassMarket in a miniature world that is a hybrid of CG and actual models. The experimental filmmaking style results in a unique commentary on reality. What is it about miniatures that forces you to look so closely?

Denis is an expert at creating alternative universes using animation and miniatures, the result is always an extreme version of the world. Her short films, "City Paradise" and "Fish Never Sleep" are whimsical and oozing with creativity, and give us a great sense of the signature this director is sure to carry with her as her career undoubtably progresses. Danis is currently represented via Stink.
