Creating the character. In this animated film meets picture book, you participate in the story. The project in itself explores the grammar of a new medium, using xerography, drawing on paper, ActionScript-generated animations, puppet stop-motion combined with real-time 3D mapping.

The six chapters in the story depict different aspects of human communication, such as learning a language, making small talk, expressing emotions.

Chapter 2: Sponge and Chapter 3: Beginnings.

As part of the creative process for BLA BLA, Morisset extensively researched interactive narrative to define a new grammar of non-linear editing. BLA BLA thus offers a new vision of communication in the wider sense, of how our natural behaviours and interactions with others play out in the world.
