Django Films

Django Films is a film studio run by the Oscar nominated French animator Sylvain Chomet. The studio, named after the jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, is based in Edinburgh, Chomet's adopted home. Produced The Illusionist, based upon a hitherto unproduced script by Jacques Tati. Also, "Les Triplettes de Belleville" (80 min – 2003) and "La Vielle Dame et Les Pigeons" (23 min - 1998). The Django Films studio was set up solely to make this film, and is now being dismantled.

Famous quotes containing the word films:

    Television does not dominate or insist, as movies do. It is not sensational, but taken for granted. Insistence would destroy it, for its message is so dire that it relies on being the background drone that counters silence. For most of us, it is something turned on and off as we would the light. It is a service, not a luxury or a thing of choice.
    David Thomson, U.S. film historian. America in the Dark: The Impact of Hollywood Films on American Culture, ch. 8, William Morrow (1977)
