"I drew the film from the beginning to the end, without any line testing, so without seeing the results. Only at the end of the first month I shot the first sequences to see if the style worked, to see if it was okay for me. For the rest of the residency that I had in Italy, I drew and drew and drew… It was insane.
This way of making an animation film, I think it’s visible in the end. Because it’s very much based on sketch, the movement of the hand. There is a kind of energy. Also I worked with music on; I was in a kind of trance. Different kinds of music – like electro pop music, French bands like Sexy Sushi. Each day I began with this song ‘Je Refuse De Travailler’, which means, “I refuse to work”.
