Michel Gondry and Bruno Delbonnel give masterclasses in Dublin
The film director and director of photography participated in a series of masterclasses on January 28 and 29 at the Irish Film Institute in Dublin, Ireland during the Digital Biscuit Festival.
Famous and now a cult figure throughout the world, Michel Gondry attracted a huge crowd to the Irish Film Institute in Dublin. Most who came were young, keen to participate in the masterclass by the "master" (who is currently the president of the 5th edition of MyFrenchFilmFestival). The audience, highly active on social networks, and in awe of a director who was very open and relaxed, then watched a screening of the documentary Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy? An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky.
The following day, director of photography Bruno Delbonnel gave a thrilling masterclass about the influence of abstract painting on his and his collaborations with Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the Coen brothers, Alexandre Sokurov, and Tim Burton... Bruno Delbonnel followed the masterclass with a meeting with twenty students from the National Film School, and answered their questions.
Last but not least, a third masterclass was organized with Vincent Aupetit, a former student at the Gobelins School of the Image, director of the short film Burning Safari, and now a previz supervisor in the Hollywood animation industry. It was yet another demonstration of French expertise in the realm of digital animation, and of the quality of training in French animation schools.
