The Lyon-based motion design agency Cumulus, which I wrote an interview some years ago (read it here) just released their new 2013 showreel. An opportunity to have a look at their last works for clients like Orangina, Footmercato, Région Rhône-Alpes or the electronic music festival in Lyon Les Nuits Sonores.

You may have notice that the blog's activity has slowed these last weeks and I'm sorry about it, but the launch of my communication studio takes me a lot of time and energy. So I'll try to take advantage of the calm of August to share with you some of my recent discoveries.
It's not already a hot news here in France, but I think that a really great documentary film is about to be launched at the end of the month trough the world. This film, called Samsara, directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, is the result of 5 years of work through 25 countries. An interactive map, on the film website, shows all the locations with some photographs. Entirely shot in 70mm, the movie is conceived as a kind of guided meditation, a unique audiovisual experience in which only music and images lead the viewer's mind.
Martin Allais is a pluridisciplinary designer, working essentially for illustration, animation and motion design. His productions are very varied and he works as well for advertising as for V-Jing projects (with for instance Four Tet). Born in Venezuela, latino-american culture is very important for him and in his work : he sees this culture as an original creation made of different parts of European, American and Pre-columbian cultures.
Paphù vs Idols is a french transmedias pixel art animation series, produced by Citron Bien (Pierre Dron), written by Jean-Pierre Poirel, animated by Hélène Ducrocq (Read more about her works) and musically illustrated by Fabrice Faltraue.
A great work of animation, nice colours, a childish universe and holidays... This teaser of animation film My family and the wolf will surely make you want to see the full film. Still in production, the film is directed by spanish studio Headless and produced by Nectarious Film. It seems the launch is planed for 2012, and I think it could be a great success.
