A Monster in Paris

24 Sep

It may ring a bell… or not, the name Bibo Bergeron is already well-known in the animation world for Shark Tale and The Road to El Dorado. Now there’s a new magical title: “A Monster in Paris”, featuring Bergeron’s trademark animation style and rhythmic, well-written musical numbers, thanks to Matthieu Chedid (also known as M) and the lovely voice of Vanessa Paradis.

The story of “A Monster in Paris” sets in Paris in 1910, Emile, a shy movie projectionist, and Raoul, a colorful inventor, find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing citizens. They join forces with Lucille, the big-hearted star of the Bird of Paradise cabaret, an eccentric scientist and his irascible monkey to save the monster, who turns out to be an oversized but harmless flea, from the city’s ruthlessly ambitious police chief.

“A Monster in Paris” is set to be released on the 12th of october.

Discovering new music

22 Sep

What better way to re-start than with a great song? And since I love music… the first article will be about, of course, music! First I would like to mention Thesixtyone, a great site to discover new music. Your can truly spend hours here  just listening to good, fresh new tunes. One of the artists I discovered recently (thanks to Thesixtyone) was William Fitzsimmons. Fitsimmons’ songs quickly find their way into your heart and if not through your head, then through the deep emotional characteristics of each and every song.

But since I don’t want to leave you with a melancholic mood (since Fitzsimmon’s songs can be quite gut-wrenching sometimes), we’ll end this on a happier note, namely the music of singer-songwriter Clara C (Clara Chung). Not really known yet in Belgium, but one day… maybe. In the meantime enjoy!

This is one of the coolest and most interesting blogs of the moment I think!

It is full of helpful en nifty tricks and tips for graphic designers, photographers and creatives. The tutorials are great … and everything is explained in a way that even a complete ‘noob’ would understand.

Nick Campbell (the creator) also just launched a new iPhone app: ‘CrossProcess’ … a photography app with colorenhancement (no more need of Photoshop to make your pictures look cool!)
