‘olympic vermin’ by leo bridle and amael isnard

with the olympic torch relay taking place in london, french animators leo bridle and amael isnard have developed ‘olympic vermin’, an animation short with creatures running the ceremonial sprint. it tells the story of a community of wildlife critters, working together to bring their olympic event to a success and shuttle the baton through the city where they believe the flame should reside, with a very positive outcome worth celebrating.
