"Tom the Cat" Bastien Charrier, Paric Jean, Lucas Salton & Neila Terrien

French animation has a style all of its own. "Tom the Cat" is a conventional fun cartoon style animation produced in 2000-2 by four students from the Supinfocum University in northern France. It is fast and furious in the "Tom and Jerry" tradition though with the backgrounds rather more detailed than the old classic. It features car chases and old ladies and dogs falling off skyscrapers. Created primarily in Maya it is a tremendous piece of work with some exciting and anarchic moments. Bastien Charrier, Paric Jean, Lucas Salton and Neila Terrien are four talented young men. You can download the five minute movie from their website:
