Sur la piste du Marsupilami, Making of 2012

HOUBA! On the Trail of the Marsupilami

  1. Overview

Alain Chabat evokes the childhood passion which led him to adapt the adventures of this famous cartoon character for the screen.
From development to the final film, he will present the process of writing the script and discuss aspects of visual and narrative development.

Between his desire to make the Marsupilami a credible animal on screen and the challenge of letting it freely evolve in its natural setting, you will learn how Alain Chabat has managed to "tame" the Marsupilami, with the help of the Buf Compagnie teams.

By his side, Pierre Buffin (founder of Buf Compagnie), Olivier Cauwet (VFX Supervisor) and Bastien Laurent (Animation supervisor) will discuss in particular the technical prowess needed to create the Marsupilami's fur and the filming techniques needed for his eight metre-long tail.
