What the jury said:
"The choice of the Les quatre nouvelles saisons d’en sortant de l’école as this year’s Crossmedia Award winner comes as no surprise. This is an enchanting and brilliant project that succeeds in bringing the poetry of four great authors closer to a younger audience. The starting point was the powerful ideas within poems; these have been skilfully transposed into an illustrated book and a collection of short films. A particularly impressive feature of the project is that the short films were made by recent graduates of French animation schools.
Poetry and animation successfully intertwine in an inspired, skilfully executed work made using bold illustration techniques and adapted in each episode to the individual poem. The attention to the images, together with the detail of the soundtrack, is immaculate and inspiring.
The risk was to end up reducing the sensitivity and spirit of the 52 beautiful short videos inspired by the words of Roy, Tardieu, Verlaine and Chedid to a simple portfolio. Instead, the variety of feelings and illustration techniques also emerges from the printed pages, serving as a precious insight that goes to the heart of the project. The book expertly captures the nuances, essence and sensibility of each budding filmmaker’s imaginative and emotional response to the poems."
