Wow I totally over looked this! what a great campaign! French comics artist/animator Joann Sfar created an old style classic animated promotional video for Lancôme Cosmetics. Staring Betty Boop and sopkesmodel/supermodel Daria Werbowy having a heart to heart conversation about all things woman. All with that in the commercial the two are gently promoting a new line of mascara called “Star Eyes” or Hypnôse Star. Both these beautiful woman promote glamour and fun. Love this cross over how about you? Check out this video below reminds a bit of Who Frammed Roger Rabbit. This is an international campaign so it was only promoted in Spain and France.
I know I am a day late celebrating the birth of one America’s pioneers in animation Max Fleischer. I am still playing catch up with all my back logged blogging, and this one almost slipped under the radar. Fleischer is too important to forget. So its important to mention him since I grew up with a lot of his cartoons, and I’m sure you did too. Max Fleischer born June 19, 1883, a Polish-Jewish immigrant who grew up in Brooklyn, New York received commercial art training at Cooper Union. In his teens, he started working for The Brooklyn Daily Eagle as an errand boy, and eventually became a cartoonist for the paper. Fleischer was a pioneer in the development of the animated cartoon and served as the head of Fleischer Studios. He brought notable animated characters: Betty Boop, Koko the Clown, Popeye, and Superman to the movie screen. He was also known for The Sidewalks of New York. Fleisher passed away September 11, 1972 he would have been 129 today. Take a moment to remember this great pioneer in cartoons and animation.
Have any of you ever seen this Love & Theft by Film Bilder video its nuts! very trippy and psychedelic but one thing I like about this video the most is the subliminal avant-garde Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob SquarePants, Betty Boop, Hello Kitty Spiderman, Burt, Powder Puff Girl and, Charlie Brown. Now warn you it’s almost seven minutes worth of flashy interchanging characters, that could make you a little ill and maybe the end is not too suitable for children with out supervision. I personally like the sound track by Heiko Maile. Check out the short film below.
