The Conservatoire d’art et d’histoire is the location for the exhibition An Animated Tour de France: Spotlight on Sacrebleu Productions hosted by the Musée du film d’animation d’Annecy.
For more than 20 years, the Musée du film d’animation d’Annecy has been committed to showing the general public representative elements that make up the industry of moving images through the work of a country, a studio or a filmmaker, offering a rich and diverse vision of the history and aesthetics of the world of animation.
This year’s spotlight presents a trip into the heart of the French animation industry by focusing on the famous Parisian studio Sacrebleu Productions. Founded by Ron Dyens in 1999, the studio soon established itself with an outstanding production of frequently award-winning animated films. Prizes include a prestigious Palme d’Or for a short film in 2010 (Chienne d'histoire by Serge Avédikian), a Cristal for a Short Film in 2014 (Man on the Chair by Dahee Jeong), along with the César for best animated short film in 2016 (Sunday Lunch by Céline Devaux). Sacrebleu Productions also walked away with the Audience Award at the Annecy Festival in 2015 for Rémi Chayé’s Long Way North, the only feature film produced by the studio to date.
From preliminary sketches to storyboards, the Musée du film d’animation d’Annecy offers visitors a privileged tour behind the scenes of the studio. Screenings, making of films and extracts complete an interactive experience into the successful Sacrebleu Productions machine.
As part of Annecy 2017, an official presentation of the exhibition will be held at noon on Tuesday 13th June at the Conservatoire d’art et d’histoire.
