ReviewsEdit

  • "Chernokids" was named short film of the day in a review by Scott Beggs on June 6, 2011.[5]

The look and feel of the animation is somewhere between Pixar and a Slipknot music video that’s been burnt on one side and left out in the desert. The result is something that might play in a dank backroom of a short film festival (or out in the open of Fantastic Fest).[6]

  • "Chernokids can be described as bleak, stylized, and offbeat."[7]
  • "Chernokids, a disturbing CG short movie by Marion Petegnief, Matthieu Bernadat, Nils Boussuge, Clément Deltour et Florence Ciuccoli made at Supinfocom."[8]
  • "Sad and disturbing, but very well made."[9]
