La BIEN-AIMEE, a short animation film, was really an experiment with a bunch of crazy colleagues at the time. I’d been writing scripts littered with scary monsters for video games and I wanted to write something which portrayed the monsters inside. Inside one Albert Dupeu. It was nonetheless selected for various  film festivals including International du Film d’Amiens, Clermont-Ferrant International Short Film Festival and Les Nuits Magiques Festival International du Film d’Animation. I wonder what you make of it. This version is in French (I’ve added subtitles, though).
