The Short Story of a Fox and a Mouse

A lonesome fox hunts a small mouse in the snow, as foxes do, until two owls get involved and change the dynamic of this Short Story of a Fox and a Mouse. Presented by CGMeetup, this 2017 CGI animation was created by École Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques (ESMA) student directors Camille Chaix, Hugo Jean, Juliette Jourdan, Marie Pillier, and Kevin Roger.
