Director Biography - Alice Thibault

Hi, I'm Alice from Paris.
I used to work as a layout graphic designer for Disney magazines when, one day, I decided to finally leave everything behind and try my luck in stop-motion animation.
I'm totally new at this, the only experience I had before the short movie "Une Fleur et Deux Poussins" ("One Flower and Two Chicks") was a short I made for my diploma about ten years ago (available here > https://vimeo.com/12730657). I love the real, tangible feel of puppets actually moving, with all their imperfections and textures. You can't duplicate that with 2D or CGI animation.

The idea of "Une Fleur et Deux Poussins" started as a joke by my former roommate Pierre, in the early days of the first covid lockdown. Pierre helped me develop the story and my other roommate, Fred, who is a musician, did the sound design and composed the music.
I discovered a lot of technics during the process, and learned from the many mistakes I made, by realizing a whole animation project by myself from the beginning to the end. I think my favourite part was the making of puppets and props.
