Happy Halloween!


That's my friend Pierre Landy in the photo, dressed as the Mad Hatter.
About three years ago, when I had some time on my hands, I brainstormed with Pierre the idea of animating the invitation for his upcoming birthday party in Paris. Pierre is a huge fan of Disney animation, and he especially loves the female villains. After a few discussions I agreed to animate him disguised as three different wicked ladies. He sent me his voice recording and after three weeks of work the invite video was finished.
It was a crazy idea, but a lot of fun to do. Later I took all of the animation drawings to Paris and handed them out as party favors. 

Incidently, way back when I met Pierre, he worked in the legal department of Disneyland Paris for a number of years before moving on, and today he is one of Yahoo's top lawyers.

To be honest with you, this little homemade project went through without a glitch, it gave me the confidence to produce "Mushka".     

This is a piece of affectionate satire, no more, no less.

  1. What about Sarah and Mushka? How's it going?
    You do not write about it for a long time.

    1. I don't want to reveal too much about Mushka, but things are going very well. The story reel is getting temp sound, and I animated a couple of production scenes. Having a great time!!

  2. Das ist so wunderschön. Handgezeichnete Animationen strahlen auf mich eine Wärme aus, die CG noch immer nicht erreicht. Vielen Dank für das Video.

  5. You are a genius!!! I love the introduction, it seems you used a multiplane camera. Sorry for the question, did you use software to ensemble the animation with the backgrounds? Thanks for sharing!

It is a great problem for the unemployed people the time they go in for the loan amount in any office they are very badly nagged in the respect of flashing the record of having any current job which must be paying them at least £1200 for last three months.
