Blue Sky Studio’s art has made its way to Paris at the Musée Art Ludique, and is offering an exhibition dedicated to all things Ice Age. Blue Sky Studios was first created in 1987, first limited to special effects work for Fox Entertainment Group, and later began directing short films like Balloon Guy and Joe’s Apartment. It wasn’t until 2002, when they released the first Ice Age film, that this studio would become known by the general public. With anti-heroes like the lazy and kind-hearted Sid, or the unlucky squirrel Scrat, with the help of their bigger furry friends Manny the mammoth and Diego the tiger, Ice Age brought in audiences of over 24 million for its first four films in theaters, and it’s fifth will be hitting the big screen in France on July 22nd, 2016. This exhibition takes you behind-the-scenes to see how animated films are made at Blue Sky Studios, with more than 800 drawings, paintings and sculptures, film clips and interviews from designers and producers! This event was created exclusively for the Art Ludique museum and with the help of studio artists and directors, and will be seizing the opportunity to also present the full short film Bunny, 1999 Oscar-winning short animated film in an exclusive remastered version, along with Robots, Epic, Horton, Rio, and Snoopy and the Peanuts.
Also featured will be a selection of historic works returning to the trailblazers of the animation and illustration industry from the beginning of the 20th century on the USA’s East Coast that would later inspire Blue Sky Studios.
This exhibit is a special opportunity to discover more about the celebrated Ice Age films, either before or after seeing Ice Age 5, Collision Course.
