This is an excerpt form 'The Secret of Drawing', a television documentary broadcast on the BBC in 2005. In this section Sylvain Chomet talks about drawing, animation, and his upcoming film "The Illusionist", due for release in 2010.

Note. The animation of Tati here is by Laurent Kirtcher, on of the ultra talented supervising animators of the Jacques Tati character. This was an early test animation.
