Since I first saw some animation test and renderings of this feature, I fell in love with it. The story takes place at the begining of the 20th century in Paris, at the time of the Moulin Rouge and the universal exhibition.
The movie is directed by Eric Bergeron “Bibo”, ex Dreamworks director on “The Road to Eldorado” and “Shark Tales”. I wasn’t moved much by the story on Shark Tales but I really liked the work done by the concept artists and the designs. “Eldorado” is also one of my favourite 2d cartoons.
The production is said to be starting in Septembre in Nice (France).
The website for the movie seems to be down at the moment but you can always have a look at Bibo films website
here is a list of blogs from people involved in its production, gorgeous work:
