Oktapodi

This 3rd year student graduation film from Gobelins l'école de l'image got about 13 major festival awards, such as Annecy, SIGGRAPH, Imagina and a 2009 Oscar nomination.


Most of the participating students went directly into the industry after graduation.

One of the co-directors, Julien Bocabeille, now works at Dreamworks. Olivier Delabarre later worked on Despicable Me as a color designer, Thierry Marchand worked at Framestore and Dreamworks as well. Quentin Marmier is doing commercial work and Edmund Mokhberi is a freelance filmmaker photographer.

So, you could say that the effort they put into their project really paid off for the most part.
