“Le Futur – Pierre Cardin” Animated Documentary

The life and work of groundbreaking French couturier Pierre Cardin are honored by peers and proteges in this short doc directed by Matthew Miller and animated by the team at Moving Colour in Los Angeles.

Matthew Miller “Pierre Cardin was a titan of design for nearly seven decades. This animated documentary is based on interviews with Pierre Cardin, Jean-Paul Gaultier, André Leon Talley, and others, conducted by Paula Wallace, president and founder of SCAD.”

Moving Colour: “The project started with Paula Wallace, [a longtime friend of Pierre’s], wanting to create a short animated film about Pierre’s influential life from his earliest memories as a child to this present day.

“The production was a six-month process from beginning to end and we had an incredible time crafting this traditionally animated film by hand.”
