At this link you will find some concept images from the production we are currently working on.
It is Bibo Bergeron's "A Monster in Paris".
The link is in French though.
The trailer was shown at a press conference in Annecy last week.
We have almost finished our work.
Another trailer for A Monster in Paris went online yesterday, this one in English.
What I like best about this movie so far, is that there's a monkey in the film named Charles. Hmmm...
There's an interview with the film's director Bibo Bergeron by Ramin Zahed published on Animation Magazine's website today.
DreamWorks veteran Bibo Bergeron goes back to his French roots with A Monster in Paris, an elegant CG-animated feature set in 1910.
French director Bibo Bergeron has directed two very different DreamWorks animated features (The Road to El Dorado and Shark Tale) and worked as character designer on the studio’s Jerry Seinfeld vehicle, Bee Movie. However, although he had made Los Angeles his home, he still missed Paris. That’s when he began dreaming of making an animated movie with a very distinct French flavor.
“I was in L.A. for years and a little homesick,” Bergeron tells us. “I wanted to write something set in my home city, Paris. In addition to that, I’ve always loved the turn-of-the-20th century when arts, science, technology innovations were moving ahead at full speed. Altogether, I wanted to make a fun, romantic and musical movie.”
