planet5D | the best HDSLR site on the planet Skhizein - short film by Jeremy Clapin Having been struck by a 150-ton meteorite, Henry has to adapt to living precisely ninety-one centimeters from himself. An animated short that runs for only 13 minutes, this tells the rather comical and yet sad story of a man affected by a meteorite in a most peculiar way. Once he has been struck he finds that his body is now constantly 91 centimetres from where it should be. With a warm, wonderfully rendered style and a mixture of great detail and enjoyably abstract moments, this little piece of animation is, quite frankly, an absolute joy. Writer-director-animator Jérémy Clapin is someone I hope continues to produce great work and go on to even bigger and better things. Won Kodak Short Film Award in Cannes Film Festival, 2008 Directed by Jérémy Clapin / France / 2008
