Le film franco-belge, Couleur de peau: Miel, est co-réalisé par Laurent Boileau et Jung Sik-jun. Il s’inspire du bande dessinée autobiographique de Jung, un Coréen qui était adoptée par une famille Belge et grandisait en Belgique. Le film mélange des séquences documentaires et des scènes animées. Vous pourriez trouver l’horaire du film au siteweb cinemamontreal.com.
For any francophones out there feel free to point out any errors in my French (written French is not something I practice often). The literal translation of this title in English is Color of Skin: Honey but the official English title is Approved for Adoption. It’s a 2012, French-Belgian film directed by Laurent Boileau et Jung Sik-jun. It’s based on the autobiographical comic of Jung, a Korean adoptee who grew up in Belgium. Le film combines real life documentary sequences and animated parts as well. The mix of real life and animations reminds me of the Canadian documentary One Big Hapa Family which also did the same. Couleaur de peau: Miel is playing in French only at some cinemas in Montreal right now so for those of you who understand French you can check out the screen times at cinemamontreal.com.
This is really fun and creative. It’s directed by Zhe Zhang
This neat music video has pixel art animation done in the style of 8-bit/16-bit 2d games (with a chibi style similar to what the Scott Pilgrim game emulates). The rapper is named Gowe.
This is not what I would call a fully animated series. It’s a motion comic which means the original art is subjected to limited animation and some camera movement. There’s music, sound and voice acting although there are no dialog balloons or any other comic book panel elements that you would see in sequential storytelling. It’s based on the graphic novel of the same name. This was started at the beginning of 2012 and all 13 episodes have been posted which completes the storyline.
I’m late on this as this trailer was posted way back in March but now it’s available on dvd and streaming. I read this comic strip a long time ago and only happened to be reminded of it and then came across a *gasp* movie version. PhD which stands for Piled Higher and Deeper is a funny take on grad school life with sinusoidally varying amounts of exaggeration and truth. It was created by Jorge Cham.
