April and the Extraordinary World’ Wins Annecy’s Crystal Award

“April and the Extraordinary World,” Franck Ekinci and Christian Desmares’ animated feature featuring Marion Cotillard’s voice in the title role, won the Cristal award for best feature film at Annecy Animation Film Festival.

Co-produced and repped by Studiocanal, “April and the Extraordinary World” is a 2D arthouse movie in the tradition of European auteur-driven toons.

“April and the rigged world” is completed !

After few months of intense production, Digital Graphics has completed the compositing of the plans that have been assigned to us!

Just under 800 plans have therefore been through the expert hands of our operators between July (start) and April 2015 (closing). Sometimes adjusting the color, sometimes working the lighting, sometimes creating smokes, they have been immersed in the particular universe of Jacques Tardi under the direction of Christian Desmares.

The film was produced by Je Suis Bien Content (Paris) and, in Belgium, by Need Production.

And the 4th !

Honestly, we did expect it… That’s true ! The film is beautiful and the work which has been done under the eye of the director Tomm Moore is just fantastic !

However, this kind of news is pretty cool to hear. The studio has worked on this project intensely during 9 month without counting the time for the preparation which is more around few years. Digital Graphic made on the film colorization, texturing, vFX and compositing.

Moreover, the studio believed so much in the project that its founders have decided to engage as co producers through the production company The Big Farm.

So, let’s say it… we are happy ! And very proud of the all team who devoted itself on the film during entire months..

The studio is already involved in 3 other nominated movies: Brendan And The Secret Of Kells in 2010, Ernest & Célestine in 2012 and Death of a shadow in 2013. So, sometime, we do dream about a statuette…
