Jean-Claude Charles is a 3D animator and set-up director, who worked with Michel Ocelot as animator and assistant director on several films, such as Azur & Asmar, Tales of the Night, Kirikou and the Men and Women, and the latest one Dilili in Paris. His daughter Prunelle gave her voice to the character of Dilili.
In 25 years, Jean-Claude Charles has experienced the whole process of creating a film through different positions he held (animator, 3D puppets manufacturer, animation director and assistant director). He has learnt to understand the constraints around direction (whether it’s an advertising film, a documentary, a video game, an animation series, a live feature film or an animation film) and also to appreciate team work. Dilili in Paris is his 4th film with Michel Ocelot.
