Angoulême is renowned for its animation studios. It is also the second center in this field in France after Paris. And among these studios, we count Ellipse Animation which is currently completing the creation of a cartoon for France Télévisions.

It’s an original creation that took two years of work at the Ellipse Animation studio in Angoulême. Belfort and Lupine is a 2D and 3D cartoon whose action takes place in the Palace of Versailles, as explained to us Antoine Ormieresproduction director at Ellipse Animation: “ The characters, the accessories used by them, as well as the animation are made in 3D, but the settings are made entirely in 2D. »
