ARTWORK FROM GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S PINOCCHIO
Exhibition of original sculptures and digital paintings from the film at the Paris Cinema Club gallery from October 21 to December 18 2022 in association with Art Ludique
Guillermo del Toro presents an exclusive exhibition bringing together original sculptures, character research and concept arts used to create his Pinocchio version, shot entirely in stop-motion (frame-by-frame animation).
The free exhibition is at the Paris Cinema Club gallery (28 rue Mazarine, Paris 6) from October 21 to December 18 (Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Thursday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.).
“Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio”, co-directed with Mark Gustafson, will be released on Netflix on December 9.
Sourced directly from Portland (Oregon, USA) where the filming took place, the original film sculptures (about thirty centimeters high) are unique, all precisely sculpted by hand. Each of their body parts, their hands, heads and facial expressions were meticulously brought to life for the cameras by teams of talented artists and animators.
French fans of Guillermo del Toro will be able to discover the original and stylized Pinocchio sculpture as well as those of Geppetto, Cricket and three other previously undiscovered characters. Each sculpture will be presented in its own artistic and graphic world (research drawings of sets and characters from the film).
The film will be released on Netflix on December 9. More impatient fans will be able to discover the film during a series of previews: - October 19 at the Christine Cinema Club and at the Écoles Cinema Club (Paris) in the director’s presence - October 22 and 23 during the Lumière festival in Lyon in the director’s presence - Saturday December 3 in Annecy as part of the Hivernal Festival at the Bonlieu centre.u.
