L'Illusionniste encore! from Tom Caulfield on Vimeo.

Heres two scenes i worked on from the Sylvain Chomet film "L'illusionniste" I feel lucky to have work on such a unique film and am greatful to work with such a talented group of people so passionate and commited to animation.
So thank you to everyone that made working on this film a real treat for me.
If you get the chance to see the film i hope you enjoy it.

Hey Paddy, Thanks so much for the very generous comment. 2D is all i'll say ;)
Thank you too Toby, a great comment coming from a talented dude like yourself is really something.
Hey Karen, thank you for your comment i really appreciate the time you took to jot it down, that goes for you also Mark, thank you so much.
Yeah the release dates were a bit on the lean side for the film. I think your best bet of seeing it would be to check in on any film festivals that may be going on in your area. I hope you get to see it soon.

Hey Tom. Fantastic animation. Really solid and consistent and not a shred of Rotoscope involved. I'm looking forward to seeing the final film as I'm sure it's full of slick scenes like these. The future of 2D animation is in safe hands.
Keep up the good work.

I really enjoyed the animation in this film. Not too sure about the storytelling in comparison to Belleville Rendez-Vous but still an enjoyable film.
Really admire your work on these scenes.
