Michaël Leblond is a graduate of the École nationale supérieure d'art de Nancy. He started as graphic designer and author of children’s books. In 2007, while in a Japanese museum, he discovered the work of American artist Rufus Butler Seder. Seder had resurrected ombro- cinema, an animation process whose origin dates back to the end of the 19th century. Fascinated by ombro-cinema, Michael tried to unlock its secret and make his own animated images. He lead ombro-cinema workshops for children and developed animated spare parts that the children assembled using glue and scissors to build characters, vehicles, machines... thus the beginning of Kinoptik.
