Yves Geleyn: Colosse - A Wood Tale

Young Guns 7 winner Yves Geleyn recently created a delightful animated short about Colosse, a very tall, wood robot puppet who doesn’t know his own strength. “I’m a huge fan of Jim Henson’s work. I have always wanted to work with puppets but never had the chance to do so before. I’m also a huge fan of robots; they were in all my childhood movies, cartoons, and comics. The robot from Paul Grimault’s The King And The Mockingbird; Brad Bird’s Iron Giant; and Goldorak, a Japanese cartoon, were inspirations for me. It was these two passions of puppetry and robots that drove me to create this short film, with a bird in it of course (can’t lose my bad habits),” said Yves.
