He runs faster than a train, jumps higher than the tallest building, has X-ray vision, but hides behind a shy newspaper reporter. You recognized the Man of Steel of course, aka Superman. You may know about the movies, but have you ever seen the animated cartoon series from 1940? Re-discover America's legendary superhero in 17 episodes (in Technicolor!) that will bring you back to the golden age of animation.
Our featured filmmaker Harry Bozino, who is based in France, seems to have a particular love for New York City as you will see in his videos. He first came to us with the short film It Was Nice Meeting You, in which a pink dragon meets a depressed cop. Bozino's style and sense of humor instantly grabbed our attention. When the young filmmaker isn't working on short movies, he likes to direct music videos like the one he made for French artist Freezé, also set in the Big Apple!
