A certain je ne sais quoi

Richard Neupert, UGA’s Wheatley Professor of the Arts and a Meigs Professor of Film Studies in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, was quoted in French Morning, Los Angeles, about the success of the French design studio TeamTO, which recently opened an office in Los Angeles.

“Since the 2000s, French studios have known real success owing to their ability to offer something a little different—the famous ‘French touch,’ with their drawing of amazing concept and quality, close to a comic strip—especially in the increasing uniformity we see from the giants such as Pixar and Disney, but all now adapted to the constraints of the international market,” said Neupert, a specialist in French animation who is a faculty member in the theatre and film studies department.
