MAY 2018 PART 2

Very nice review by The Hollywood Reporter of the film THE STATE AGAINST MANDELA AND THE OTHERS. The documentary from Gilles Porte and Nicolas Champeaux who was in the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival this year, for which I created about 40 min. of animation. The film will be in theatres this autumn!
Here's the link: THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - The State Against Mandela Review

MAY 2018 :

Off to the Cannes film festival to present the film of Gilles Porte and Nicolas Champeaux THE STATE AGINST MANDELA AND THE OTHERS about the trial of 1963 against Mandela and 9 others and their struggle against apartheid. It's incredible what these men did and sacrificed for justice and freedom. A peace of history that is now more relevant than ever.
I designed, directed and animated the approx. 40 minutes of animation for the film. A team of nine very talented artists joined me for the animation: David Devaux, Mathieu Ratier, Vincent Escrive, Matthieu Gueritte, Théo Gremillet, Antoine Presles, Loïc espuche, Soukaïna Najjarane and Viviane Karpp.
I owe so much to the directors Gilles Porte and Nicolas Champeaux for the opportunity they gave me on this powerfull film.
