[dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap] Short animation about two octopuses fighting for their lives with a stubborn restaurant cook in a comical escape through the streets of a small Greek village. Oktapodi is a 2007 French computer-animated short film that originated as a Graduate Student Project from Gobelins L’Ecole de L’Image. The film is about a pair of love struck octopuses who through a series of comical events are separated and find each other. Oktapodi was directed by #Julien#Bocabeille, #François-Xavier-Chanioux, #Olivier-Delabarre, #Thierry-Marchand, #Quentin-Marmier, and #Emud-Mokhberi. Music was composed by #Kenny-Wood.

The storyline of this five star award winning short animation is very simple but is beautifully executed,  this short film is extremely engaging and can be watched over and over and still not old. The whole team from the director all the way down have  done a superb job on this classic short animation and for that we think you

Oktapodi was well received, winning a number of awards, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Short Film (Animated) for the 81st Academy Awards. It was also included in the Animation Show of Shows.
