It’s brilliant, but what is it?

It has become something of a family habit lately to watch YouTube cartoons before bedtime. On my vacation address in Denmark, after a little browsing under the key words “Tex Avery” (yes, I raise my children well), I bumped against this absolutely brilliant 3D-animated short. It’s splendid to look at, laugh-out-loud funny and my boys and me got a huge kick out of it when we played it with the volume cranked all the way up… but what is it? Can anyone tell me who made this? The YouTube title is Minuscule – The Ladybug, but it lacks any kind of credit.

    A description from another YouTube posting of this video:

    CG artists Hélène Giraud (production design) and Thomas Szabo (direction) give us a cute short film, part 1 of 78 (according to the commissioning agency) that pays homage to several themes and previous CG work, while creating a personality and world all their own…
