le meurtre

*Post by John Oman

Tom Haugomat and Bruno Mangyoku are a pair of Parisian animators whom have really made waves over the last few years. I was first introduced to their work at the 2010 Ottawa International Film Festival and everything they have done since has grabbed me with such visceral intent — I couldn’t help but fall in love with their minimal design aesthetic.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see the trailer for their up coming film LE MEURTRE. Their simple designs and colour relationships imply movement and narrative on every level. They are revolutionizing animation design in much the same way Bruce Timm did with Batman the Animated Series 20 years ago.
