A source of exhilarating work is that of the Paris based agency Cosa. I was encouraged to their site by two animated songs for Emile Simon produced by the terrifically talented group of French animators Nobrain. My particular favourite is "Flowers" in which our naif tries to buy a group of undesirables a bunch of flowers. Undesirables? Well they look like monsters to me. All your favourites are there - see how many you can spot. Alternatively you can view Emile herself singing away as she is gradually enveloped by roots and branches that snake around like pythons, "Fleur de saison" . There is much to see and hear at Cosa, Nobrain and indeed www.emiliesimon.com. I shall be returning later to the first of these.
In the meantime I was delighted that Cameron Ivey-Drayton received the nod of approval for an intended interview with the creators of the dynamic 'A Brand New Psycho', Davide Saraceno and Davide Ragona from http://www.say-bye-to-your-silly-planet.com/. Cameron has been nagging me for weeks about this interview. Good to see enthusiasm and I shall see if he can channel that into good questions for this Italian studio. Also this afternoon we were delighted to hear that Liam Oades was successful in obtaining an interview with Aidan Gibbons whose "The Piano" is our current “Movie of the Week”.
