About Georges Schwizgebel
Born in Reconvilier, Switzerland, Georges Schwizgebel is among the biggest names in contemporary animation. This well-rounded author of 14 short films has seen his work pick up prizes at Cannes, Annecy, Zagreb, Hiroshima, Stuttgart, Ottawa and Espinho. Two of his films ("78 R.P.M." and "The Ride to the Abyss") rank among the Festival d’Annecy's hundred most influential animated films. Though he first used rotoscoping, Schwizgebel later traded in this tool for a freer approach marked by the gestural application of colour and the frequent use of geometric shapes .
