We're happy to have heard from Arnaud Janvier a Director at Cube Creative in Paris who co-directed this great music video with Antonie Robert. The French are producing some of the world's best animation as is evidenced by the content that's coming from there over the past few years both in CG and traditional animation. You can add this video to list of outstanding works we've been seeing lately.

There's more to see concerning the making of this video at Arnaud's blog. Check out "Up In The Sky" and enjoy the music of 77 Bombay Street...
