Hello all, this is my first time on the website and this forum.

When I was quite little, I remember having seen on TV a short fantasy cartoon with an eerie music and pastel colours. There was some flying white winged giant creatures (but featherless) that were quite peacefull. One was attacked by another flying darker beast and fell through a botomless hole in the ground and transformed into the same creature that attacked it.

Has anybody seen it and can anyone tell me who made it:confused:

Thank you

I saw this years ago hosted on the International Animation Film Festival hosted by Jean Marsh on PBS. There are several similar cartoons, that I've seen, the one that sticks in my mind is called Skywhales:

Don't know how much of a help this is.

Try looking through those international animation short collections on VHS at the library.
