I recently travelled to Paris on a weekend break and checked out an animation exhibition on The Artistic Journey of the Saga How to Train Your Dragon at the Art Ludique Le MusĂ©e . On this occasion, the exhibition took place in Paris’ 7th arrondissement. Unfortunately, I only found out about this museum recently, so I missed out on visiting the previous exhibitions including; 25 Years of Pixar Animations (25 Ans D’Animation Pixar), Art in Video Games (L’Art Dans Le Jeu Video), Art of Super Heros (L’Art Des Super-Heros) as well as Drawings of Studio Ghibli (Dessins Du Studio Ghibli).

Had I known about this museum before, as I would have hopped on a Eurostar train to Paris for a day trip to see their past exhibitions (after all, Paris is just around the corner from London right?). I enjoyed visiting this museum as it showcases the creative works from movies, manga, anime and gaming that I have enjoyed and appreciated for a long time.

The exhibition was open to visitors between the 31 Jan-24 February 2019 (free entry) and displayed almost 200 of the original paintings and sketches by the animators and illustrators involved in the creation of the movie. Seeing all the works made me think about how talented the artists are and the amount of work that goes into creating animated films. This also had me wishing that I could draw and create works just as amazing as those that I saw. As someone who reads manga, watches anime and plays video games, I’m not as creative as I’d like to be, fortunately, I get to enjoy watching the works that are created by the real artists out there.



The museum was small so you could go around looking at everything in about 40 minutes which I did. I spent most of that time looking at the works from animators and illustrators like Simon Otto, Carter Goodrich and Nico Marlet. The were screens placed around the museum displaying videos of animators and directors talking about the different process involved in the making of the movies.

The exhibition was a great way to learn about how the artists transformed their sketches of dragons and characters into digital images and animations throughout the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy. It was refreshing to learn that artists were able to portray certain atmospheres and emotions in scenes using their own interpretations, simply from suggestions given to them by directors. Attending the exhibition made me aware that french artists and animators greatly contributed and collaborated with DreamWorks in the making of the trilogy.

As I finish up writing this post, I’m currently looking at screen times so I can watch this movie next week! Visit Art Ludique Le MusĂ©e on your next visit to Paris, who knows what exciting exhibition they’ll have on next! The British Museum’s upcoming Manga exhibition in London is the next exhibition that I can’t wait to check out this summer! If you’re a huge manga fan or you’re simply interested in learning more about it, the British Museum will definitely be the place to visit!

Lors de mon dernier weekend Ă  Paris, en cherchant quoi faire dans la capitale, je suis tombĂ©e sur l’Art Ludique le MusĂ©e. Art Ludique Le MusĂ©e est un musĂ©e dĂ©diĂ© Ă  l’animation, situĂ© Ă  cette occasion dans le 7ème arrondissement de Paris. Le musĂ©e prĂ©sentait L’epoppĂ©e artistique de la trilogie dragons. J’aurais aimer aussi decouvrir les expositions prĂ©cedentes telles que ; 25 Ans D’Animation Pixar, l’Art Dans Le Jeu VidĂ©o, l’Art Des Super HĂ©ros ainsi que les Dessins Du Studio Ghibli ce sont aussi tenues dans ce musee, que malheureusement je n’ai decouvert que recemment. Si j’avais  connu l’existence de ce musĂ©e avant ce weekend, je n’aurais pas hesiter Ă  sauter dans un Eurostar pour une journĂ©e de dĂ©couverte (après tout, Paris n’est qu’Ă  deux pas de Londres, n’est-ce pas?).   Ce musĂ©e est tres intĂ©ressant car il prĂ©sente des Ĺ“uvres crĂ©atives de films, mangas et jeux vidĂ©os.

 

L’exposition Ă©tait ouverte aux visiteurs du 31 janvier au 24 fĂ©vrier 2019 (entrĂ©e libre), et a prĂ©sentĂ© près de 200 croquis et peintures originaux des animateurs et illustrateurs participant Ă  la crĂ©ation de Dragons. En voyant toutes les oeuvres, je me su is rendu compte du talent des artistes et compĂ©tences nĂ©cessaire qui entrent dans la crĂ©ation des films d’animation. En tant que personne qui lit et regarde les mangas et joue aux jeux vidĂ©os, je dĂ©plore mon manque de creativitĂ© mais je sais apprĂ©cier les Ĺ“uvres d’animation crĂ©es par de vrais artistes.

 

 

 

 

 

Le musĂ©e Ă©tait petit, donc vous pouviez faire le tour en environ 40 minutes. J’ai pu admirer les Ĺ“uvres d’animateurs et illustrateurs tels que Simon Otto, Carter Goodrich et Nico Marlet. Les Ă©crans Ă©taient rĂ©partis autour du musĂ©e et montraient des vidĂ©os de rĂ©alisateurs parlant des diffĂ©rents processus impliquĂ©s dans la crĂ©ation des films Dragons.

L’epopĂ©e artistique de la trilogie dragons Ă©tait un excellent moyen de comprendre la facon dont les artistes transforment leurs croquis en animations tout au long de la trilogie Dragons. Il Ă©tait intĂ©ressant d’apprendre que les artistes pouvaient dĂ©peindre certaines ambiances et Ă©motions dans des scènes en utilisant leurs propres interprĂ©tations, simplement Ă  partir de suggestions clĂ©s donnĂ©s par les rĂ©alisateurs. L’exposition m’a fait dĂ©couvrir le role très important jouer par les artistes et les animateurs français qui ont collaborĂ©s avec le studio d’animation DreamWorks dans rĂ©alisation de la trilogie Dragons. 

 

 

Alors que je finis d’Ă©crire cette revue, je cherche les horaires des sĂ©ances pour aller regarder le film Dragons la semaine prochaine! Cet Ă©tĂ©, je prĂ©vois d’aller visiter l’exposition de manga qui se tiendra au British Museum Ă  Londres de 23 mai- 26 aout 2019. Si vous etes un fan de manga et vous Ă©tes Ă  Londres ne manquez pas cette exposition!
