While the “short” we are sharing with you is not animated this week,  it does pack a considerable amount of artistic inspiration from the artists at Dreamworks. As book publishers, we think it’s even better that this inspiration is also in book form.  We get all sorts of excited when we see the unification of the printed project with the visual representation of film.  Yeah, we know, we are a little dorky about content.  Don’t get us started on how great we think book trailers are or the development of apps for our books.

Alexis Wanneroy and Christophe Lautrette have beautifully directed a wonderful short about DreamWorks’ first personal art publication, Moonshine.  Much less a book trailer and more artistic insight, the book was conceived as an opportunity to highlight the breath of artistic talent at Dreamworks. While this may come across as incredible self-serving of a major animation studio,  it’s actually quite endearing and inspiring to see the personal sketchbooks,  artistic processes and that the real life moments that capture the imagination of Dreamworks artists.  The short features artists Sam Michalp, Nicolas Weis, Christian Schellewald, Paul Duncan, Marcos Mateu, Nathan Fowkes with a special appearance from Jeffrey Katzenberg.

 Moonshine was published by Design Studio Press and edited by Christophe Lautrette & Pierre-Olivier Vincent.
