• Home Sweet Home (2013) - Alejandro Diaz, Pierre Clenet, Roman Mazevet, Stephane Paccolat

    Named Best Animated Short at the SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival, HOME SWEET HOME was produced at France’s Supinfocom Arles. In the 10-minute short, according to the official synopsis, “a house uproots herself and goes on an adventure.” The house, set in a decaying, abandoned small town, uproots itself in a bid to stave off demolition and heads off into the unknown, inspiring others to join along.” (Jennifer Wolfe, Animation World Network, 12/8/14)

    The short animated movie HOME SWEET HOME was directed by Pierre Clenet, Alejandro Diaz, Romain Mazevet and Stéphane Paccolat at Supinfocom Arles for the end of their studies in 2013. It tells the story of a living house, in the suburbs, which escapes from its sad environment to live adventures and travel … music by Valentin Lafort, a touching animated movie to watch.(Fubiz, December 2014)

    14182917169352It’s a pretty light-hearted romp, considering the concept was based on the American housing crisis (a lot of the design of the early scenes was inspired by photographs of abandoned Detroit buildings) … Narratively, HOME SWEET HOME is a short that feels like it could benefit from a tighter edit, the pace can be slow at times and its probably a couple of scenes too long, but this is somewhat forgiven when you spend its less-engaging moments taking in the meticulously designed environments … it’s the style that wins us over at the end of the day … it’s the technical achievements of these four animators that has got everyone talking … it’s really hard not to be impressed. (Rob Munday, Short of the Week, December 2014)
