daft punk is making a movie!



The news is of a new movie being made by Daft Punk, there's now some info and pictures of the movie, Electroma!

I ran the text through Babel and I'm surprised at how clear the English came out. Below is the translated text with some minor tweaks.

"Announced weeks ago like a long-term plan, the first full-length film carried out by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter (more known under the name of their group of electronic music, Daft Punk) goes against any waiting being presented at next Quinzaine the realizers with canes. Three years after having written the scenario of Interstella 5555, the masked duet spends this time behind the camera, for a "live" film of which we reveal you today, of "planetary exclusiveness", the first photographs. De Daft Punk's Electroma, one does not know much more than one knew before Interstella 5555 was released. A short synopsis of film was however delivered to the press, that we deliver to you in integrality: "Daft Punk's Electroma is visual and musical which follows the history of two robots in their search to become human". In this film without dialogues, bathed of a music signed by Steven Baker, Peter Hurteau and Michael Reich interpret the two robots. It is a relatively short (1 hour and 14 minutes), but guarantee that its density will suffice so that one speaks much about it on the small cross."

Can't wait for it. I love how Daft Punk is becoming more direct with their music and music videos recently.
