The Trinkets on Allociné !

Allocinated tells us about Babioles from Mathieu Auvray, director of the short film and the series in production which will soon be released on Canal+. A great opening for the new category Website Short Films.

A reminder of the subject ?

The Babioles seek contact, like Wall-E, we discover these little creatures in a landfill (do not see here a metaphor with the Earth…), the editors therefore saw, naturally, a link between Mathieu Auvray and Andrew Stanton.
