He's joining two companies in one fell swoop? It's quite simple, really: Dirty Films will look after Chomet for all things live-action and multimedia, while Hush will take care of animation projects.
I see. Now that's all cleared up, why don't you tell us more about the man. I understand he was once nominated for one of those Academy Awards. Make that four Oscar nominations. Those well-versed in the Best Animated Feature category will appreciate Chomet's work over the years, including the 'The Triplets of Belleville' and 'The Illusionist'.
Chomet is a staunch advocate of hand-drawn animation. Doodles won't cut it with this man, which is why his illustrative prowess is in such high demand.
How in demand are we talking here? Well, he collaborated on an episode of The Simpsons - you know, nothing major. Chomet cemented his pop culture cred by directing a special couch gag on the show. His whimsical interpretation has Homer gorging on snails, Lisa mourning the death of a goose with an accordion, and Maggie lodged in Homer's derrière.
Très amusant! Looks lovely, too - it's tough to surprise hardened Simpsons fans, so this must have been a pleasant surprise. Evoking an audience reaction is one of Chomet's specialties. His unnerving commercial for Amnesty International literally hits hard with its tangible depiction of torture. Try watching without wincing.
Bruising, that one. Isn't it just? Chomet brings a heightened quality to this grave subject. It also underlines his ability to produce thoughtful results, whether it's on a film set or in the animation studio.
