They are this week in Télérama, Le Monde, Ouest France, Direct Matin, Télé 7 jours, France Soir, Aujourd’hui, A nous Paris
Here’s the Télérama’s article (in French):
ATTENTION LES GEES !
Pacifiques mais envahissants, ces espiègles extraterrestre sont les rois de la cata.
Existe-t-il envahisseurs plus redoutables que les Gees ? Hauts comme trois pommes, ces petits extraterrestres de la nouvelle série de Gulli transforment tout en catastrophe. Et aucun terrien, pas même le maître de kung-fu le plus zen au monde, ne résiste au trio infernal composé de G-Boy, G-Girl et G-Cat.
« Les situations mises en scène s’apparentent à celles que rencontre un adulte totalement débordé par trois garnements impossibles à maîtriser », expliquent les créateurs des Gees. Et ils savent de quoi ils parlent : à eux deux, Josselin Charier et Antoine Rodelet comptent pas moins de sept enfants ! Comme La Chouette et Léon, deux autres séries en 3D du Studio Hari, Les Gees ont gardé l’esprit cartoon du cinéma muet mâtiné du burlesque d’un Buster Keaton ; aucun son intelligible ne sort de la bouche des personnages et l’action va à 100 à l’heure. « L’absence de dialogue nous oblige à un gros travail d‘écriture, ce qui ne se voit pas forcément à l‘écran », fait remarquer Josselin Charier. Ses petits extraterrestres auraient pu avoir été créés par un certain Tex Avery. Mais, à la différence des héros hollywoodiens, les Gees respectent – la plupart du temps – les lois de la physique. C’est peut-être pour cela que, au final, leurs rencontres avec les Terriens se terminent miraculeusement bien ! » (Marie Prud’hon / Télérama)

This is the best Christmas gift that Studio Hari could dream of: the first TV special of The Owl is aired tonight in prime time.
On Christmas Eve, the frog is organizing a present-giving ceremony in the forest to which the Owl is forced to come despite himself. Faithful to his spoilsport nature, the pink-winged creature does everything he can to make off. That is until a caterpillar shows up at the party as a last-minute guest. The Owl escapes the clutches of the Frog Santa and chases after the caterpillar. But this doesn’t mean the Owl will have a Christmas feast.

During the first quarter 2010, LEON was the 5th best rating of the kids’ slot on FranceTélévisions (Ludo). And if we consider, all the French channels, LEON was the 7th best rating on the same period amongst the other French animated TV series. If Leon is kind of a looser, he doesn’t bring bad luck to its creators.

Focus on Studio Hari at the France Télévision press conference in Annecy
During the France Télévision group’s conference on youth programmes on 10th June 2009, as part of the International Animated Film Market in Annecy, short programmes – and therefore the productions of Studio Hari were particularly honoured. Here are a few extracts from the press pack.
Short formats revive the rhythm of cartoons and unite very diverse audiences with the dynamism and humour which they bring to the screen. Generally lasting between one minute and three and a half minutes, the short programme enables its makers to innovate, to surprise and to open up to new forms of writing. It frees itself from the sometimes constrictive limits of the classic animated series, with episodes which run for 26 or 13 minutes.
“The Owl” from Studio Hari has to date been sold in more than 200 countries: what was yesterday considered on the markets to be an unconventional, marginal format is now thought of as a new genre, and a laboratory for all forms of experimentation, both graphic and literary.
Josselin Charier and Antoine Rodelet, the producers of Studio Hari, told us of their experience with short programmes, from “The Owl” to “Leon”, their next original creation soon to be shown on France 3.

The tradition goes back to the beginning of time, awaited by the festival goers: the rabbit …. in the preview of the Festival.
The tradition goes back to the beginning of time, and no-one or almost no-one can explain its origins. It’s an unavoidable part of the Annecy Festival, a golden rule which is handed down from generation to generation, impatiently awaited by the festival goers: the rabbit …. in the preview of the Festival.
What exactly is it about? Well, just a rabbit which appears in the preview, just try and find out why. In the 2009 preview produced by Studio Hari, the rabbit, for the first time, gets a kick up the backside (in not just any old how) by a mad Owl. Result: he crosses the screen in less than a second, which sets off a wildly enthusiastic reaction in the audience.
The rabbit kick of « The Owl » will go down in the history of the festival!!

Who could be better than this quick-tempered character to present the Festival’s partners?
Each year, the making of the promotional trailer for the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, which presents the Festival’s partners, is entrusted to a different production company.
It is with undisguised pleasure that STUDIO HARI has accepted this year’s proposal from CITIA, the Festival organizers, to make the trailer.
STUDIO HARI has chosen THE OWL to present the festival. For who could be better than this quick-tempered little character to present the Festival’s partners? The Owl hates advertising. And when she gets mad, there’s a show in store – and as we all know, entertainment makes for good promotion. CITIA were not wrong there!
STUDIO HARI is an independent audiovisual production company based in Paris and Angoulême (France). Specialized in 3D animated films, STUDIO HARI is both a production company and an animation studio
