Panel Borders: The art of Marc Caro

Panel Borders: The art of Marc Caro

In the first of a month of shows looking at the crossover between comics and film, Alex Fitch talks to director Marc Caro about his experiences in both media, how working in bande dessinée led to animation, how animation led to live action film. Marc talks about his work appearing in Metal Hurlant with Enki Bilal and Moebius and how the work of Spiegelman and Satrapi made the form more respectable. Also, Alex and Marc talk about his work designing the comic book adaptation Blueberry, how his colleagues Jean Pierre Jeunet and Pitof fared in America making Alien Resurrection and Catwoman respectively and what it was like making his first film – Dante 01 – without his famous Delicatessen collaborator.

    Brilliant podcast. Really interesting. I’ve never heard of this site before but it seems great and I’ll definitely be back in the future. I’m doing research on Jean-Pierre Jeunet and his influences so this interview is great.
