Already mucho awarded, now nominated for an Academy Award: “Logorama” – watch it at http://www.logorama-themovie.com/ or elsewhere on the web – by H5, a company whose Ludovic Houplain says “It is almost surreal to realize that everything can be represented by a logo” – source: http://www.villanoailles-hyeres.com/designparade/?p=570 …
Further context can be found on http://www.boingboing.net/2009/09/15/logorama-animated-ci.html#more – “The short was created by directors within H5, a French graphic studio renowned for its cd front covers (Superdiscount, Air, Demon…) and artistic direction (Dior, Cartier, YSL…). Members François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain directed many music videos (Alex Gopher, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp, Röyksopp…), and are regularly invited to exhibitions for their artistic talents (2007 Nuit Blanche, Beaubourg, MoMA). Logorama is their first short film […]. The short was *four* years in the making, and features a voice cameo by filmmaker David Fincher as the Pringles man.”
