Annecy, the world’s biggest and oldest animation festival, just ended this weekend. The festival always has some of the most inspiring traditionally animated shorts. The movement of the dog in this short, “Coil,” is just beautiful. The short was created by Charles Badiller, Eva Lusbaronian, Juliette Peuportier, Julie Robert and Arnaud Tribout.
Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
