Asterix et le domaine des dieux

Il y a de cela trois ans maintenant, je fus invité à faire quelques recherches couleur, puis à rejoindre l'équipe artistique pour la pré production du film "Asterix et le domaine des dieux" chez Mikros Image Paris. Ayant à l'époque d'autres projets, je n'ai finalement pas contribué à cette production. Je tiens malgré tout à féliciter chaque artisan de la fabrication de ce film qui selon moi reste à ce jour la meilleure adaptation cinématographique de l'oeuvre de René Goscinny et Albert Uderzo.

Back in 2012, I've been invited to do some color keys, then to join the pre production team on the feature film "Asterix and the land of the gods" at Mikros Image Paris. Since I had other plans at that time, I finally did not brought my contribution. But I highly congratulate everyone who contributed to the production of this film, that remains according to me, the best adaptation that has been made so far from René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo's saga.

Les histoires de Monsieur Pink

Hello dears, here's a few development drawings I did for an illustrated books serie that I am planning to do. I wrote the first one a few days ago and I am working on the visual direction now. I got this idea a while ago, but would still like to make something of it.

Chers visiteurs, voici quelques dessins de recherche que j'ai récemment fait en vue de continuer sur une petite série de livres illustrés. J'ai écrit la première histoire il y a quelques jours et je cherche maintenant à en développer la direction artistique. C'est une idée qui date un peu, mais je pense toujours tenir à en faire quelque chose.

Bonne visite.

The Boxtrolls


Here is some animation I did for the end credits sequence in THE BOXTROLLS from Laika. I realize that I am not used to display any of the animation work I do. So I'll try to show off some things sometimes. I was very happy to get a chance to help on this sequence directed by the great Aaron Sorenson. (Aaron also directed the credits sequence in PARANORMAN). I loved the movie. Actually there's nothing from Laika that I do not love... It is quite exciting to see these people, striving to preserve that authenticity in what they do.

2014 Catching Up

Hello everyone, I know it's been a while since the last post and I'd really like to keep this place alive. The fact is that, since I got back from Los Angeles were I've been working on ME AND MY SHADOW at Dreamworks Animation in 2013, I had a fairly busy year of 2014, working independently from my place in Paris. I would indeed love to share the work I did these past few months, but unfortunately and for the reason you may know, I will have to wait before being allowed to show anything. So the stuff I did does include some development for Aardman Animation on a project directed by Peter Lord, same thing on a TV show directed by the super nice Jan Lachauer (Room on the Broom). I've been keeping up 2D animation too, with a contribution on the end credits sequence of THE BOXTROLLS for Laika, and a few scenes on Juanjo Guarnido's project FREAK OF THE WEEK for the swedish Metal band Freak Kitchen. I've been animating with some good friends there.

Next to this I wanted to announce that my first short film THE INSPECTOR AND THE UMBRELLA is finished and will hopefully soon be released in festivals and internet.

I will post new things pretty soon, including animation pencil tests and some personal stuff that I'm currently developping. I hope that you can enjoy it ! And thanks a lot to those who keep passing by !

Cheers !
