This beautiful, 3D-animated short film takes a shockingly dark turn

A third-year college student in Arles, France, filmmaker Camille Jalabert has turned heads with hilarious and dark comedic super-shorts.

A Vimeo staff pick for February, and co-directed by Zoe Guillet and Maryka Laudet, DADDYCOOL features a father just looking to please his baby. It’s gorgeous animation—that takes a dark turn.

Jalabert’s short film Fuel was likewise a Vimeo staff pick in May.
