Simon Rouby - French Animator - Adama

Some of Simon's earlier animation work includes the short films Blind Spot, a 3d black comedy, and a pair of more experimental films in 2d, Le Presage and La Marche.

Simon's most recent project is the feature film Adama. Adama is the 12-year old hero of the story. When his older brother Samba vanishes from their African village, Adama decides to set off in search of him, eventually crossing Europe in the grip of World War I.

Adama was an official selection to this year's prestigious Annecy animation festival, where it was nominated for best feature and continues to screen worldwide.
