In 1991, Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (aka Moebius) and a team of animators created this gorgeous short pilot for a film called Starwatcher. According to this Wired feature that Mark wrote in 1994, "Starwatcher was slated to be the first feature-length animated movie to be made with 3-D computer graphics. But the film's producer died in a car accident, and shortly thereafter it was discovered that the French production company bankrolling the film was FF85 million (US$15 million) in debt. (Many suspected the car accident was no accident.)"
Producer Philippe Rivier in 1997 tried to adapt "THE LONG TOMORROW" the short story comic written by Dan O'Bannon in 1975.
as a TV series adaptation with Ridley Scott and Jean Giraud Moebius, this is the test film they produced as a proof of concept.
Mœbius and Sylvain Despretz did some designs for the sets and costumes.
Jean Giraud or Moebius is a legend in the comic industry but always had trouble with animation, this is the story of the les maitres du temps, an animated feature that Moebius designed and storyboarded, as well as his history with animation and anime.
