Video: Sylvain Chomet discusses The Illusionist

In case you missed the link to the Berlinale Festival page in my previous post or didn’t happen to notice, there is a press conference video on that page from the premiere of Sylvain Chomet’s “The Illusionist” (original story by Jacques Tati).

Click on “Press Conference” to start the video stream and skip ahead to 5:55 for the discussion. Most of it is spoken in English and those parts that aren’t have a live voice-over translation. Chomet talks about the origin of the project, correlations between Tati’s style of directing and directing for animation, possible advantages to producing the story a half-century after its conception, and the inspiration to set scenes in Scotland instead of Prague. If you’re anticipating this film as much as I am, this is definitely worth a viewing. Again, here’s the link.
