Autour de Minuit is a film production company based in Paris created in 2001 by Nicolas Schmerkin. The company aims at supporting aesthetically innovative projects, and develops original graphic worlds with a solid content. Hybridization -at the heart of the artistic approach of most of the works born in the company- gives the opportunity to explore new ideas and sensations in plastic art and intent to provide with visuals never to be seen before. The production catalogue includes short classics as Obras, Flesh, Carlitopolis, Dix and Logorama, Academy Award winner for best short animation in 2010.
Since 2004, Autour de Minuit also deals with world distribution of animations and digital works, with a catalogue of nearly 200 films.
