“5 mètres 80” a short film of Giraffees and an indoor swimming pool

5 mètres 80 from Nicolas Deveaux on Vimeo.

I watched some other video on Vimeo that someone had posted on Facebook I started out other videos there and stumbled across his amazing creation.   It is short film of realistic looking giraffe’s doing perfect dives into an Olympic sized indoor pool with the help of their suspended upside giraffe friend.   How creative is that?  This is one of those things you didn’t know you always wanted to see but never could without the invention of manipulated media and a truckload of patience and ingenuity.

The description below the film was in French, so I used Google Translate to translate the description below by the creator of the video  Nicolas Deveaux

“I realized there nearly 10 years “7 ton 2” a short film featuring an elephant on a trampoline. I wanted to make a sequel, this time with giraffes … The creation of this film was spread over 1½ years.

Thank you in Orange, Arte, City of Paris, CNC, Procirep without whom the film would not have been possible!”
