This is the picture of the new design of the blog, hope you like it (both picture and simple design^^). I decided to draw a city scenery cause I never had the occasion yet. For a first attempt, i think it's okay :)

Annecy 2011

Hello!

I've been off to Annecy for the annual animation film festival! It was so GREAT!!

Here are some pics of the town, really cute!





I saw a lot of movies, short, long, study, in or out competition, it was fantastic, I never ate so many movies in so few time! It was really cool, I met some very interesting people, and I learned a lot of things attempting to some speaches, so I really appreciated it! The only bad thing is that I caught a cold, so I couldn't be at my best brain capacities all the time!

Here are some movies I really appreciated (no particular order) :

You can click on each names of the movie to access to the description.

La D├ętente

Xing


Viagem a Cabo Verde

A morning Stroll

Chroniques de la poisse


I have also attended to a projection of Vinton's short movies, it was really interesting! There were few stop motion movies, that himself has picked as the best/more interesting of his work, and I must admitt that now that I've seen those movies, I want to see more movies from Vinton!^^

But, to me, the BEST PROJECTION EVER was the Disney's Laugh-O-Grams projection! Why? Because in the first part, there were (in world premiere) the restoration of some mute early Disney movies, and the president of the festival was live playing piano as it was at the projection in that time! It was so gorgeous!!
Sorry for the bad quality, that's the only "acceptable" picture I could take with my cell phone. The little (little little) light on the left is the President of the festival playing piano.



And to finish, I attended to some speaches from the Walt Disney Animation Studio team, I learned a lot of things and I could Speack to Dawn Rivera-Ernster (sorry I couldn't get a picture of her ) and Clay Kaytis that has helped me figure out one or two important points about important stuffs^^

From left to right :

And finally (really finally) I had the chance to chat a little little bit with Bill Plympton, and he dedicated me a kind of newspaper or something!

Grimm

As promised, a new watercolor^^ This is inspired from the fairytail written by Grimms brothers about a water sprite and a miller. There's a lack of light effects i think, but i'm getting better (i hope...)
