They Never Managed To Get Jean Giraud, Moebius, and Gir Together To Do One

Du Tac au Tac was a 1970s French television programme which brought cartoonists together to create improvised jam drawings based on specific themes, building upon one another's illustrations. Some highlights: Neal Adams (Batman), Joe Kubert (Sgt. Rock), and Jean Giraud (Blueberry) open Pandora's Box and in another segment, create a bestiary and draw their favorite comic-book heroes. Jean Giraud and Hugo Pratt (Corto Maltese) create a 3-panel strip using four onomatopoeia provided by Jean Claude Forest (Barbarella) and Jije (Spirou and Fantasio). Goscinny and Uderzo (Asterix) play a game of equisite corpse with Greg (Achille Talon) and Davy (Olivier Rameau). [more inside]

"That which suggests is superior to that which shows. Movies today show more and more. It’s paranoid dictator cinema. What we need is schizophrenic cinema." -- René Laloux

René Laloux is best known for his direction of the 1973 animated film La Planète Sauvage, titled Fantastic Planet in English, but his life in film started earlier. His first shorts came from his painting and shadow puppetry workshops with the patients of La Borde psychiatric clinic. Laloux continued to work in animation, making one short himself, then collaborating with four different artists (Roland Topor, Moebius, and Caza), turning out a total of 10 shorts and 3 feature films.
