Few things get us as excited in the studio as the prospect of a new animated film of Michel Gondry in conversation with legendary activist Noam Chomsky, not to mention the fact that it has been animated by Michel himself – so you can imagine the way coffee cups flew across the room when we came across his “making of” Is the Man Who is Tall Happy. Fortunately for us Michel talks to himself almost incessantly while working, so this short film gives an unbelievable insight into his painstaking animation process, plus the measures he went to to connect with Noam even writing words down when they found themselves lost in translation.
The full film is now available to buy on iTunes, so you can bask in the radiant glow of their collective genius from the comfort of your own home, right now! Watch out for the harmony of Michel’s lapsing French combined with Noam’s bass-like drawl. It’s dreamy.
