For the good part of 2011, I was animating on a new feature adaptation of Pinocchio, by Italian director Enzo D'alo, with art direction by the lovely illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti.
This version of Pinocchio is much closer to the original book than the famous Disney version of the 40ies.
It's also much more colorful, weirder, and fast paced. I guess in general, it's just much more Italian!
The movie went in to premiere at the Venice Days Film Festival in September and will have an Italian release in December. I suspect Belgium will follow in February 2013...
