The new short promotional video “Let’s make it happen” mixes animations and real images.
Laurent Witz, who won an Oscar for the animated short film “Mr Hublot” in 2014, presented a cute story which shows, through the eyes of a little girl, a bird made of paper which evolves through the people it meets. It grows from a paper bird, to a wooden bird, to a metal bird which can fly better each time, a metaphor for the grand duchy which has evolved over time.
Witz said: “The level of detail on the characters, on the décor, on the intensity of the atmosphere presented a real technological and artistic challenge because of the mix of techniques. We build each of our projects like a new challenge.”
Francine Closener, secretary of state of the economy, who presented the video at the CNA on Tuesday 6 February, said that “the film has a strong and engaging message which transmits perfectly the promise of the country: together we can go further”.
The film is going to be shown internationally to present Luxembourg to a public which does not know necessarily much about the grand duchy.
