When you think of a crowd at a rock music gig, what type of people spring to mind? For French animator and sculptor Inès Pagniez, it's big muscles, handlebar moustaches, occasional mullets and long flowing locks.
That's what we see in her latest body of work, Rock Groupies, which was made in collaboration with Canadian creative studio Wonderlust. The little animation features her usual character style – tiny dots for eyes, button noses, expressive mouths and the occasional mullet (mullets are apparently a thing for Inès).
The short film focuses on an audience appreciating a drummer's "killer" solo. We see them nodding along as the beat is bashed out. It's only a short and sweet little intro to Wonderlust's latest showreel, but we love it.
Based in London, Inès Pagniez arrived in the capital in 2012 as soon as she graduated from the French animation school, Supinfocom. After working for seven years as a freelance 3D animator, she wanted to get away from the computer and work with her hands. Today, she calls herself an animator and sculptor. She loves bright colours and the "imperfection of plasticine".
