I was at OFFF (animation & design conference) in Paris this past week and was fortunate to meet briefly with Julien Vallée, an extremely talented motion & design artist. Julien was at the conference presenting his video for the ‘sponsors’ opening title sequence…which he hadn’t shown the festival directors any of the video until it was premiered to the audience. I’m as much a fan of his video as I am the cute track it is coupled with. Please check out Like Elliott Did if you like what you hear (entire album is on their site).
I really love how clean, sharp and colourful his work is. Tangible art-form is such a pleasing change of scenery when the regular media is predominantly digital. I’m sure a 3D artist could replicate most of Julien’s work in a fraction of the time but absolutely fail at replicating the charm and authenticity his creations embody.
Julien shares a studio with another great designer Karim Zariffa — both creating from Montreal.
Looking forward to more from Julien and Karim.
