More animation today: “Jazzed” by Anton Setola. His name might let you think he is some kind of Mafia-type, but apparently he’s just a regular guy from Flanders, like me. What a pity.
Also a pity: I wasn’t able to find the complete film because it is still touring the festivals. Later, perhaps? I did find an interview with Setola which again starts in French but that didn’t seem to work out, so they continued in English. The interview has a lot of little excerpts from the film, so you’ll get a pretty good idea what it looks like. It looks great, by the way. In my humble opinion.
Setola also has a blog where you can find some more of his work and sketches. Check it out at antonsetola.blogspot.com/. The pictures above are either taken from the film, or are preliminary sketches.
(There is a small part where he tries to speak French again. He soon gives up on that, don’t worry. (I must admit I wouldn’t do much better in French… :) ) The only thing being said there is that he didn’t work on paper, everything was done digitally with a program called DigiPaint.)
