I had planned to post something on this a few days ago, but got busy and Enrico has beaten me to the punch.
The film is a collection of shorts by the geniuses at Studio4ºC. The segements that they did for the Animatrix are by far my favourite in the film. I love the work of all of those guys, but with Genius Party I am also very personally interested in seeing the segment "Le manchot melomane" by Nicolas de Crécy. I first became aware of his work after seeing La Vieille Dame et les pigeons. Unfortunately, by the time I started working on Les Triplettes, he and Sylvain had already parted ways. I have yet to meet the guy, but I'm a huge fan. His drawing style and colour palette are so obvious an influence in Sylvain's film work, but it will be great what he does on his own.
Check out some trailers here, and get ready. I can't wait to see what they have in store for us 'cos to quote a line from the site, "...in July 2007, it will rock the world again."
