Things in this quiet seaside town are not what they initally appear. Not the faux-coloured pencil on cardboard animation motif, and especially not the gigantic green liquidus humanoid that just washed into this old man’s fishing net.
Animated by Mo’Sam, the team of Mohamed Fadera and Sami Guellaï, and co-produced by Dailymotion, Tulkou follows the brief, bittersweet friendship between a lonely beach bum and the man-sized fish suit he discovers. The animation style is really unique. It’s CGI, of course, but is designed to look like a stop motion short using coloured pencils and handicrafts on a cardboard medium.
