All worked on TVP with no exception. Not knowing each other is normal these days - most big productions employ freelancers that work distantly. But in the terms of style it was very important for most of us to work in-house for a while just to get into the head of the directors.
We should do an user-story, at least when we will see the film.
(It used to be one of my favorite book when I was a child ... :) )

Where is "here"? :)
In-house was in Berlin, thats where the main production was done. Schesch was a producer of the "Three Robbers" also. Some BG and animation work was done in Ireland in Cartoon Saloon too. Some cleanup was also outsourced to the far east I think. Probably other things were outsourced too.
I got on the project because I worked with Cartoon Saloon before, and was hired by them and only later I continued working with Schesch in Berlin. Secret handshake is something everybody needs to get a job I suppose :)... It was a big international team, I suppose all know each other somehow through somebody through other productions.
I'm not sure though how much info I can spread about the production itself - I think for insights would be better to talk to the producers. Suppose they would want to keep some secrets to themselves :)

I understand; I guess I was mainly curious where you are from. :oops:
From what you tell us it seems to validate the stories that there is a worldwide shortage of classical 2D animators, and particularly now, when hand drawn animation is going through a revival. Would you agree?

I'm from everywhere - lived in many different parts of the world :)
I would say there is a shortage of good 2D productions also. I guess it's related. Less productions – less animators...

The "look" of Moon Man was this one in the book :

Did the realisator keep the same ?

The style was tried to be kept as close as possible to Tommi Ungerer, but it's always very difficult when translating a small book to a feature film. I think the production did it's best to keep the characters, the animation and the backgrounds as close as possible to the original. It's a very moody and illustrative film. We, the animators, were asked to keep the animation kind of a living illustration - "Less is more" was the directors key saying :)

it should have been a pretty difficult challenge, because if I remember well my chilhood, the book was less than 20 pages ...

I saw this posted on Cartoon Brew tonight:

The filmmaker , Ghislain Avrillon , writes of 'Ad Lucem' :
"It is a traditional 2D animation (ie animated frame by frame by hand). In detail, I did not draw on paper but on a graphics tablet with TVPaint software, a powerful digital tool for traditional technique."

So refreshing and innovative in style and concept! It is such a pleasure to see a film coming out of a school where the students are obviously encouraged to take risks and find new ways of expressing themselves. I particularly like the economical editing and camera moves in and out of black limbo. This is a perfect example of how to effectively handle the time constraints of class productions; congratulations!

Such great finds! They both have an interesting visual approach. I particularly like the second one.
