Film d'animation "La Thèse"

Film made with Blender 2.93 then 3.0.0.
Rendering: Cycles
About one year of work including writing the screenplay.
(The character of Raymond Esserdhal is an evocation of a real character who is now deceased: Raymond Stora and who was one of my teachers).


Incredible work.

The animation feels authentic, the voice acting is excellent and the characters feel real. The story does a great job of foreshadowing and becomes a kind of temporal M.C. Escher staircase.


Thank you for your analysis.
The opinions of other Blender users are very helpful as I think it is always difficult to have a meaningful judgment on your own work. :wink:

Great work, congrats.

Thank you Ozgur. Glad you like it. :smiley:

Great story, congrats, the subject is one of my interests, and… I’ve seen “Surely you’re joking Mr. Feynman” (shown on a poster in the office) at the theater (and I highly recommend it)… :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for watching the film and for your appreciation. I didn’t know that “Surely you’re joking Mr Feynman” had been treated at the theater. I only knew the book. Like Raymond Stora, to whom the film is dedicated, RF is for me a model of thought.

I didn’t know that “Surely you’re joking Mr Feynman” had been treated at the theater. I only knew the book.

The play was mostly known as “QED”, and it was produced in several countries. The version I saw back in 2005 had also “surely you’re joking Mr Feynman” in the title - and I highly enjoyed it - I thought it was revolutionary to make a play about quantum physics - via Feynman’s funny personality of course.

Thank you for this interesting informations.
It is true that talking about theoretical physics to a large audience is a complicated challenge. This was also the first difficulty I encountered when writing the screenplay. :upside_down_face:
