After their acclaim with “Salesman Pete and The Amazing Stone,” just in time for the holiday is “Meet Buck,” another graduate student film from a group of French filmmakers, the Bouyer brothers. Both works make quite a compelling sales pitch for all of them to land jobs out of school, if not on more of this style. “Insane aesthetic and fantastic animation. Great job…. you talented #@$&ers,” notes animator David Badgerow.
“Meet Buck” Synopsis
Buck is an ordinary guy. Well…if you except the “deer head” thing. And today, Buck is gonna spend this cool Sunday afternoon with his girlfriend who’s so happy to see him (she’s pretty much always happy). But when Buck find out that her father is not the sympathic and tolerant guy he expected, the Sunday afternoon turns really bad.
