A French short-form animated series inspired by the art of underground comics—and the dulcet delivery of Vin Diesel—is now available to watch online.
I Am Super (Je Suis Super) is created by Christophe Blanc (visuals) and Jean-François Oliver (sound and music), for Melting Productions—an independent Paris-based studio. The series follows a quixotic tights-clad superhero with no apparent weaknesses as he dishes out fist-based justice and gruff humor in equal measure.
The Nîmes-based Blanc studied at the Écoles Supérieur des Beaux Art in toulouse, where he founded D-tracks, a video and contemporary art collective. He also produces art and animation under the moniker Valparess.
