A history of the animated film at the Musée de la publicité (Advertising Museum) in Paris during Spring 2007

A programme of some 80 films, the earliest rare and little-known, will retrace the history of the animated advertising film.

Kiss Cool Director: Ich&Kar Production: Toreros

From its débuts in the 1910s, with films by pioneers of the genre – Emile Cohl, Robert Lortac, Alexander Alexeieff – until the most recent, including the films of the Poiraud brothers for Hollywood and Orangina, Soand Sau’s films for Evian and the little monsters of Kiss Kool by Ich&Kar. Three rooms in the museum will be converted into projection rooms, while the others will show photographs, documents and archive images of the filmmakers and their work and the evolution of the various animated techniques from paper cut-outs to computer-generated imagery.
