Peurs du Noir



I discovered this whilst trawling in the backlog of the Drawn blog...it looks really amazing, a film about what lurks in the dark made of many animated shorts from the likes of Charles Burns and Lorenzo Mattoti (amongst others)...I have a copy now (though its in french) and if anyone wants it when we're back I can bring it in on my memory stick for them....I've not had the chance to watch it yet, partly because things with subtitles often require more concentration than my brain can manage >.>...

I searched for a copy of this for ages! Yes I'd like one! It's not received a great review, but it is very interesting to see the transition from graphic novelist to animator - I wonder how much help they got?

sure although if you want to watch with subtitles you'll need something called VLC media player...its really easy to download, it just means you can upload the subtitle file and you dont have problems with codecs (that leave files soundless) that windows media player has...I'll bring it in next week sometime...tuesday probably...and yeh its interesting even if its not particularly good...i think visually it looks pretty cool atleast!

charles burns was excellent, as was the marie caillou & mattotti- the rest was pretty naff - the women narrating over the abstract shapes was close to banal
