“A monster in Paris” english trailer

Well it looks like folks outside the country of smelly cheeses will also be able to enjoy Eric Bergeron’s “A monster in Paris” feature!

An 1080p English trailer just popped out and I am finally understanding why the lip sync was off in the French version… they animated with the English audio! :-) Surprisingly, the songs were also written in English. It is a good thing they had such a fabulous composer/singer as M.!

Some of the lip sync is a bit too symmetrical in places but this is looking pretty good overall. I missed last sunday’s première but I hope to catch the general release very soon.

We can say whatever we want about Europa corp. at least they made the movie come out and probably get released worldwide.

Hopefully this will attract more investors to the French feature animation industry. Wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t need to emigrate to the US to work on similar projects or command higher wages?

Talking about the USA, the TAG 2011 Wage survey just came out.

    We actually started storyboarding the film in French then the production switched to English mid-way. The songs however were always conceived by M in French. I believe the English versions were a collaboration between M & Sean Lennon.

    Sean Lennon is actually in the credit but I didn’t know who he was until now … and shame on me ;-)

    Thanks for the heads up Matt, this reminds me that I haven’t been to your blog for a while.
