Le Chat Noir

The Europeans rule the new wave of 2d animation! For some time I have maintained that we are overdue for another golden age of animation, with Disney reinstating their 2d department and Pixar blazing the way in academy-winning cartoons. Hot on the trail of Gobelins (search that name on youtube if you don't already know about it, you'll get some pretty slick student animated shorts), another art school, Lycée technique des Arts et Métiers of Luxembourg, is putting out some good stuff too. Le Chat Noir is made by Xavier Gogol, Rony Hotin Sebastien Genre and Yoann Robert, and is posted below in its bohemian, absythe-soaked goodness.

Hi Kazimir,

I'm very happy that you enjoyed our
very special movie! We dared make
something crazy in order to intrigue
people and it worked!

Thanks again!
