The Legend of the Goat Who Knew the True Meaning of the Mountain

How do goats climb impossible-looking cliffsides? How do they seem to defy gravity? This CGI animation from Léo Brunel, Juan Olarte, and Corentin Yvergniaux of the French animation collective MegaComputeur turns this talent on its ear, and then on its head.

Watch La légende de la chèvre qui connaissait le vrai sens de la montagne, or in English: The Legend of the Goat Who Knew the True Meaning of the Mountain. The animated short was a one-month-long Ecole MoPA project for a “fear of heights” theme.
