If you are curious about our history, or simply want to hear crispy anecdotes, don’t hesitate to come and ask your questions!


Conference: Bunny Maloney, Adventures of a not so bright bunny (FR)

After projecting an extract of Bunny Maloney, Méko, its creator, will talk about its unexpected creation that happened during a convention in 1999. Anecdotes and episodes will be there, because nothing happened as planned until its diffusion, 13 years later, in the form of a 3D TV series made of 52 episodes. This project fully used the energy of 74 talented animators during 2 years, despite them asking for nothing…
