Flix for Short: ABC Monsters


We’ve showcased two pieces by Evan Seitz in the last month and a half: ABCinema and 123Film. Both were essentially name-that-movie games using letters and numbers to visually represent a film whose title corresponds to said letters and numbers.

Here is another video in that vein, this time by French animator/designer La Pompadour. For each letter of the alphabet, there is a corresponding film/television monster. Now, La Pompadour gets a bit too permissive with the term “monster” in a few cases, but the work here is pretty darn keen. I was able to name all of them except for one, and that one is probably something obvious that I’m just overthinking. How many can you guys name?

Be sure to check out La Pompadour’s Vimeo page for more of his work.
