Sylvain Chomet represents the renewal of classic animation at it's highest level. His beautiful designs contradict strongly with the specific style of 3D animation. The beauty of watercolour counter acts with the clean and sharp look of 3D modelling, though this is not always the case. Chomet himself uses 3D, even though he does hid it beneath his style. Though Chomet is the mind and art behind his films, his production are truly international, with work being done in France, Canada, the UK and more. His career started in the bande-dessinee(BD) an art form so dear to the Belgians and French. This heritage can be seen throughout his work.
