    Oddly Poignant Puppet Movie: Over Time

    I don't know if this has been around the web for long or not, but I just now saw it:

    I thought I'd share it here and see what you all think. It's worth checking out; not very long and I think muppets will never look quite the same again to me.

    How does time flows fast...

    by reading your words Foxy you've made me travel in time, the time I was at the same school, same class in computer animation with Oury (Oury Atlan art director and crew member of this short student movie team) who at this time already had its magical spark of genius in story telling and cgi skill too but as he continued till the last year when they have to make their movie, I realised that I was not really good in story telling and story writing but I wanted to make practical thingies, so as he continued to reach its art in CGI I switched to product design and since 2003 I work in the automotive sector mainly making concept cars such as the Mazda kiyora, the Renault Laguna Coupé and more recently the Peugeot BB1 in a collaborative way this all these concept's respective designers....

    Turning back talking about Over time, Oury and his crew have managed really well to write and realise a sensitive story in tribute to Mr. Jim Henson in which its best creations, the muppets, try for a last time share the magic thread between the creator and its creations...

    I had since it has been released not been able to contact Oury anymore but if he someday stops by here, may it read that I send to him my best kuddos and regards...

    Then before leaving I thank you and go back amazed and anxious at the same time to realise that time flows and never stops... and god knows it has happened a real lot of things between those memories of mine and now....

    Cheers

    Dadicrunch, who would have thought someone here knows Oury? The internet is a vast and yet oddly intimate space.
    And Oriane, I know exactly what you mean by ""...
    I've found myself thinking about this little film off and on all day today. I've always had the wee small niggling superstitious certainty that something often used by someone (a wedding ring is the classic example) somehow takes on an aspect of the wearer's personality that lasts long after the wearer is gone from this world. The concept that these puppets might have a soul of some type related intimately to their creator is very intriguing.

    I remember seeing this film for the first time some years ago and it actually made me cry because of the sad music and atmosphere. Some days ago I suddenly remembered the film but not the title and I thought I would never see it again. And now this!

    Thank you so much foxytocin!!!!
