Animation short. A mechanical man eventually frees himself from his chains.
Hope was my second collaboration with Luc Petitot and his VFX company, Real Reality. It was my last preparation short in view of jumping into the decade-long adventure of directing a double feature film: Glenn, The Flying Robot (the producers’ cut), which was followed a couple of years later by The Droid (the director’s cut, my final cut thus).
Like Dizz & The Labyrinth, Hope movie was extremely successful while pre-screened before features across Belgian theaters, especially by kids.
