Dilili à Paris


Making-of of our work on the film


Feature film – French release on the 10th october 2018

With the help of her delivery-boy friend, Dilili, a young Kanak, investigates a spate of mysterious kidnappings of young girls that is plaguing Belle Epoque Paris. In the course of her investigation she encounters a series of extraordinary characters, each of whom provides her with clues that will help her in her quest…

We developed prototype tools to make this feature film using open source software that met the required technical, aesthetic and budget specifications agreed to produce the film. We were involved in monitoring the production stages, the entire film layout as well as 2D animation for the secondary characters and animated props.

Dilili à Paris won the César of best motion picture at the 44th César ceremony.
