French comic writer, animator and film director.
Chomet created many print comics, starting in 1986 with "Secrets of the Dragonfly." In 1992, he wrote the script for a science fiction comic called "The Bridge in Mud." He wrote the story for Léon-la-Came, which was drawn by Nicolas De Crécy for À Suivre magazine. This was published in 1995 and won the René Goscinny Prize in 1996. In 1997, Chomet published "Ugly, Poor, and Sick," again with Nicolas De Crécy. This won them the Alph-Art Best Comic Prize at the Angoulême Comics Festival.
His first animated (short) film, "The Old Lady and the Pigeons" (La Vieille Dame et les pigeons), with backgrounds designed by Nicolas De Crécy, won him a BAFTA, the Grand Prize at the 1997 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the Cartoon d'or prize, as well as the Audience Prize and Jury Prize at the Angers Premiers Plans Festival. It also received an Oscar nomination for best animated short film.
Chomet's first feature-length animated film, "The Triplets of Belleville" (Les Triplettes de Belleville, or Belleville Rendez-vous in the UK) was also nominated for two Oscars in 2003 (Best Animated Feature and Best Song).
