playgrounds 2014 | ARTIST TALK

French animation collective CRCR has turned a lot of heads with their drop-dead gorgeous short films.

The group – five animators and directors, working together to conceive and direct movies, from advertising to music videos and short films – has produced an incredible amount of eye candy, with themes bordering on the mythical and supernatural. Each and every frame these guys produce is a veritable work of art on its own. The team exhibits agility in the style department as well, blending everything from art deco to abstract without missing a beat. The studio tends to keep a low profile as evident by the sparse information online. But now they will unwrap their mysteries and those they’ve woven into their films at Playgrounds Festival 2014! All five (Rémi Bastie, Nicolas Dehghani, Paul Lacolley, Nicolas Pegon, Jeremy Pires) of them will be present, talking about how they work together in their process to create a movie, but also introduce their work to the one who doesn’t know about CRCR.
