"Muzorama" Elsa Brehin, Raphaël Calamote, Mauro Carraro, Maxime Cazaux, Emilien Davaud, Laurent Monneron & Axel Tillement (2008)

To understand Muzorama it helps I suppose if one is aware of the work of French surreal cartoonist, Jean-Philippe Masson (Muzo). He is totally new to me but nevertheless I very much enjoyed a genuinely surreal experience in a universe turned head over heels. We begin in deceptively suburban surroundings looking down on houses and a tiny square before we meet a man with a bouquet of flowers. Birds sing in the background. The guy presents it to a blonde woman who almost takes it before devouring the blossom as we pan out to discover she absolutely towers over him. Pan out a little more and the pair form a painting on the wall as another man almost devours a giant spoon of food, thwarted by the tiny mouth emerging from his own mouth; meanwhile the same blonde cracks open a huge egg from which emerges her erstwhile suitor. Marvel at the 3D surreal world. Ingenious work then from Supinfocom’s Elsa Brehin, Raphaël Calamote, Mauro Carraro, Maxime Cazaux, Emilien Davaud, Laurent Monneron and Axel Tillement.
