The winter blahs have set in and my sleep pattern is stuck in hibernation mode. So hopefully this makes up for the lack of posts this week. I found this excellent commercial of Today (a commercial for Winterthur insurance), via 'boards, done by none other than the King of caricature...Sylvain Chomet!!! He is the director of the multi-award winning film Triplets of Belleville. His upcoming film is the Illusionist and is based on a script from the late great Jaques Tati. It is another 'wordless' film that is set in Scotland and is about an aging magician (which will be an animated version of Tati) who cannot break the mystique of his craft to a befriended little girl. Here is some screenshots from Atomic Bear Press.
Wouldn't this have been a great thing to attend!!!! Aargh!! If anyone has any more info on what Chomet is up to these days...press the electric zapper on the HB hotline to start the salivation.
