- ABOUT THE FILM -
Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by
Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film
tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly
wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it.
Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of
attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which
allowed the creators to finance the movie's post-production. Many were
impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three
animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute
As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 40 festivals around
the world and won six awards, three of them for "Best Animated Short".

- THE TEAM-
Lightning Boy Studio was born in 2012 out of a shared passion : to tell
great stories. The three founders met in animation school in 2009 and
have dreamed ever since to be able to work together on projects of their
own. Le Gouffre is the result of their first collaboration. The team is
now working on a new idea for an animated feature film and is looking
for partners and investors to join in on this adventure.
