The charismatic LA-born musician Charles X teamed up with our very own in-house director, Quentin Baillieux (one half of the Parallelduo) for his eagerly anticipated new single entitled Can You Do It, this intricately crafted mixed 3D/2D animation music video produced by Eddy and animated at Brunch Studio.
Quentin beautifully merges the typically highbrow sport of horse racing with the commonly misrepresented “mean streets” of Pacoima, the proud birthplace of Charles X, to challenge any stereotypes or preconceptions of race and social class which may exist in modern day society.

A one-of-a-kind transatlantic collaboration between Elliot and Yves Geleyn, the Bear and The Hare has become one of the best loved Christmas commercials of recent years. Created by placing 2d cutouts of the characters into real sets and then animating in-camera, this groundbreaking film used techniques that hadn’t ever been tried on this scale. The results are breathtaking; Aaron Blaise’s (The Lion King, Pocahontas) character designs spring to life under Elliot’s direction. A film to warm even the coldest heart.
The French band Louise Attaque (Gaëtan Roussel, Robin Feix, etc.) broke up in 2006 after releasing the album “A plus tard Crocodiles”, which won the French Music Award in the pop/rock category. Useless to say that the release of the “Greatest hits” album called “Du monde autour” on October 24th is quite an event, with its two new songs.
It is an opportunity for the director Louis Clichy (animator on “Wall-e”, “Up” and “Ratatouille”, produced by Pixar) to sign a great music video with a very rough, rhythmic and sensitive style that fits the band’s energy perfectly. It is also his first music video as a director: what an event indeed! Louis Clichy, who is currently working on a very ambitious feature film (Asterix in 3D, co-directed with Alexandre Astier), offers himself a very creative blast: he loved the exercise. ChezEddy produced the video in only 22 days. Besides, animated sequences were created and shown at the mythic Ferber Studio in Paris and on the “Taratata” TV show.
The emblematic character of Louis Attaque, created by the bass player Robin Feix, is the video’s heroine. She pretty much suits what Louis Clichy likes to do: black and white, line drawing. “I’m rather close to that kind of style, the character is easy to draw, and offers real freedom. Actually, what mattered to me when I listened to the music was to find out if I could do something with it. The rhythm was important. The rhythm and, by extension, the music totally match the animation. Technically, it’s a quite simple film to make, pretty rough, very inspired. It is very pleasant to do, there is a lot of free tone”.
Along with the video, ChezEddy signed the animations in the collector DVD set “Du monde tout autour” that will accompany the forthcoming release of the music video.

The collaboration between La Monnaie de Paris and Jean-Paul Gaultier had started with the creation of 12 coins inspired by the city of Marseille. It goes on with a new collection, this time dedicated to the city of Paris. The promotional films for these collections around France are signed by Hugo Ramirez and Eddy.
For this project, the director’s main inspiration was the movie Soy Cuba, which became iconic for it’s long and bold sequence-shots.
Through flight-over effects, we follow the chase of Jean-Paul Gaultier’s iconic ‘Man’ and ‘Woman’, from indoor to outdoor decors and from one historical landmark to the other. Olivier Lescot, animation supervisor at Brunch Studio, succeeds in using 2D animation techniques to give a sense of complete freedom while dealing with a complex subject.
The graphic universe has once again been created by the illustrator Leïla Courtillon, with the input of Jean-Paul Gaultier for the details in clothing and particularly the woman’s corset. The pop-style soundtrack was composed by musician Spock. This campaign is conceived by the agency La Chose.
